PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all peoples everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 
with Thy children in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 



Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and tht 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 



tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL. CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts ; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eighty-sixth Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY COMFORTER 

Burlington, North Carolina 
May 7, 8, 1968 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1968 

Since becoming your President I have been your official representative on 
a number of occasions. I have attended meetings of the Diocesan Council and 
addressed the Diocesan Convention. I was a member of the delegation to the 
Provincial Synod in Atlanta last spring and of the delegation to the Triennial 
Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen in Seattle in the Fall. I attended the 
opening of the academic year at St. Augustine's College in Raleigh and the 
dedication, in January, of the Chapel of the Nameless Woman at the North Caro- 
lina Correctional Center for Women, to which you had generously contributed. 
These were all moving and rewarding experiences. I should like to thank those 
branches who have invited me to their meetings, and express again my regrets 
at having sometimes been forced to decline. It is by my visiting the branches and 
convocations, not especially to give the program, that we can best get to know 
and learn from one another. 

To those of you who attended Spring Planning Days I feel some apology 
is necessary as my general thoughts today are basically as I expressed them 
then, and may seem repetitious. 

The Church, as many of us have known her and taken her for granted 
since childhood, is under fierce scrutiny and challenge from both outside and 
inside. This also applies to the "Churchwomen" as an organized part of the 
Church, but I do not think that we should be perturbed that we are under a 
particular threat as "Churchwomen." To love the Lord thy God with all thy 
mind (as well as heart and strength) and thy neighbor as thyself is exercising 
all of us on every front of life. 

From ancient times the Church has embodied worship, teaching (and its 
counterpart, learning) and almsgiving. A familiar but less poetic description 
is "Worship, study and action." Each of these aspects is under direct and un- 
avoidable challenge. 

We are being challenged in our worship. The new Trial Liturgy is one 
example of this and it forces us to evaluate our concept of corporate worship. 
Can we look our neighbor in the eye and take her hand without being embarras- 
sed to express the hope "The Peace of the Lord be always with you"? If not, 
why not? Does the fault lie in us, or in its phraseology, or in the place in the 
service, or in the resentment towards a command to express vocally at a certain 
moment what we are already expressing by worshipping together, or where? 

Another example entails music. For years we have read, chanted or sung 
about praise with trumpets, cymbals, lutes, lyres, etc. But we have done this 
sedately to the strains of an organ. One version of "Ein' Feste Burg" says "Praise 
Him in dances and in sports, our God the everliving." Yet some are jolted when 
confronted by a Communion Service accompanied by guitar and banjo. In this 
exciting and swinging age, how do we worship God fully and naturally? In 
many and varied ways — sometimes in silence; sometimes in soaring tones of 
familiar melodies and sometimes with the effervescent fervour of a beat. I doubt 
whether Palestrina or Handel's oratorios or Beethoven's Ninth Symphony will 
ever cease to inspire our worship, but many can be awakened and spiritually 
thrilled by trumpets, cymbals and guitars. I can by bagpipes! These are a few 
thoughts on worship. 

Has there ever been a more exciting challenge to our minds than now? The 
Bible is basic. Now we can read many translations when a thought seems obscure 

10 



to us. We support generously the Episcopal Radio and TV Foundation through 
which we can hear and watch some of the greatest religious thinkers of the world. 
We can still study the early learned fathers of the Church, but we also have newer 
searches for the Truth. Christ referred to himself as "The Truth" and we can- 
not condemn any honest search for Him, wherever this search may lead. This is 
equally as valid in our attitude towards the various expressions of "New The- 
ology" as in that towards other denominations which are more emotional. It is 
up to us to recognize the Truth where it lies in their uninhibited forms of wor- 
ship and initially strange doctrines of holiness. Also we are beginning to under- 
stand the Roman and Orthodox traditions more fully. The branch Christian 
Education reports indicate that in most cases we are enjoying this challenge 
and are involved in deep and varied studies. Through our Secretary for Col- 
lege Work and Christian Ministries we are trying to become more aware of the 
work of our College Chaplains. This helps us understand the thinking of our 
own college age children and friends — we hope! 

Thirdly we come to almsgiving, both financial and of our time and talents. 
Here we are harshly tested. We have the Presiding Bishop's call to help in the 
Urban Crisis and our own summons for action in this Diocese. Much is already 
being done by Churchwomen in their own communities and through our Diocesan 
Budget, the United Thank Offering, Christian Social Relations and the Church 
Periodical Club; helping in community houses; tutoring underprivileged chil- 
dren; taking part in Government sponsored programs to alleviate poverty; giv- 
ing scholarships to camps and kindergartens; taking time and caring enough 
to bring companionship to the lonely, aged and sick; working with libraries, 
schools and in politics are all valid expressions of almsgiving when motivated 
by love of our neighbor. 

In our concern about Urban Crisis we must not forget those in dire need 
in other countries. We are part of the Anglican Communion. The devaluation of 
the Pound Sterling is having a distressing effect on Famine Relief and Mis- 
sionary work. Money designated by the Church of England Missionary Socie- 
ties will now do only a fraction of what it would previously have achieved. 
What about the Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ 
to which we pledged ourselves at the Anglican Congress in Toronto? If we cut 
down on World Mission, we have much soul searching before us. The uttermost 
parts of the earth are the American slums, the rural poor, the poor in Tanzania, 
India and Colombia and those in need everywhere. Poverty can be of substance, 
of education, of opportunity; but it can also be of vision and compassion, and 
against this we must be on guard all the time. 

As Churchwomen we are surrounded by programs and projects — some thrill- 
ing and challenging; many cases of quiet desperation and need which we must 
be sensitive to recognize. Opportunities come to us in unfamiliar forms. We shall 
find ourselves involved in situations and with people we have not known before. 
We must not be so traditionally oriented that we fail to hear God's call. 

As Tennyson put on the lips of the dying King Arthur: 

"The old order changeth, yielding place to new 
And God fulfills himself in many ways, 
Lest one good custom should currupt the world." 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr.

SYDNEY H. SHAW 

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT 

ROCKY MOUNT, N. C 

Member: American Institute of Accountants and 
N. C. Association of Certified Public Accountants 



Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of The Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1967, and the related state- 
ment of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examination 
was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and according- 
ly included such tests of the accounting records and other procedures as were 
deemed appropriate in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1967, and the re- 
lated Statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present 
fairly the recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended Decem- 
ber 31, 1967, and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with 
generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that 
of the preceding year.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev- Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

The general purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen is no different from the 
purpose of the Church — namely, to be the Body of Christ in the world, to worship 
Him and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 

Episcopal Churchwomen is an organization within the Church providing 
additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and service. 
It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the Church; 
to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and to 
pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 64. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 67. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known 
as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 
composed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should 
be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 
The officers should correspond as nearly as possible to the Diocesan officers. 

The Executive Board consists of the elected officers, committee chairmen, 
chapter chairmen, and any member of the Executive Council, General Division of 
Women's Work, Provincial Representatives, or Diocesan Executive Board who is 
a communicant of the parish, and the rector. The Board, under the guidance of 
the president, should plan, promote, direct, and evaluate the work of the Branch. 
Plans of the Executive Board should always be approved by the entire group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 
Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 



Mrs. Gordon Williams 
103 Liberty Lane, Greensboro 27410 

Christian Vocation begins with and cannot continue apart from a life of 
prayer. 

One's theology must be equivalent to his intellectual level. 

On these two ideas the Branch Secretary of Devotional Life can develop a 
broad program for the women in her parish. She is not called on to be — nor 
should she hope to be — an authority on theology or the life of prayer, but as 
she becomes increasingly aware of her own need to respond more willingly 
and more fully to her own Christian Vocation, the opportunities and possibilities 
of her office will become more compelling. 

In cooperation with and under the direction of her rector she can work to 
provide stimuli for spiritual growth in her parish: relevant devotions at meet- 
ings, study groups, a school or prayer, Quiet Days, a shelf of devotional ma- 
terials and books stimulating to Christians of differing intellectual levels. She 
should cooperate with the Diocesan Secretary of Devotional Life, sharing her 
communications with the women in the branch and encouraging attendance at 
Convocation Quiet Days and Diocesan Retreats at the Terraces.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Robert E. Merritt, Secretary 
832 Country Club Road, Mt. Airy 27030 

In this report there are suggestions for the branch secretary of Christian 
Education or anyone in the parish concerned with programs and study courses 
for adults. 

Planning the programs of study for general meetings and chapter meetings 
or interest groups should start with an understanding of how the study spon- 
sored by the Churchwomen fits into the whole parish program of education. 
Many parishes now have a Christian Education Committee that is responsible 
for the parish program of education. The Secretary of Christian Education for 
the Episcopal Churchwomen is often a member of the committee. Consult vour 
rector both for help in understanding the thrust of your overall parish program 
and for suggestions of specific study programs. 

Some branches are finding interest groups a solution to some education prob- 
lems. Significant learning takes place in small groups where all share a real 
concern for the subject they are studying. Also interest groups allow a branch 
to offer controversial topics which might be offensive to some members if all 
felt compelled to attend the same study course. 

Some training in Christian Education will help you plan programs that ap- 
peal to adults and fit their educational needs. One book that can give you much 
help is ADULT EDUCATION PROCEDURES ($600 or $2.45 paperback from 
the Seabury Bookstore, 815 Second Avenue, New York, N. Y. 10017). 

A monthly magazine that has excellent helps for adult education and excit- 
ing articles about what parishes are doing is Chrsitian Education FINDINGS 
($2.00 a year, order from the Seabury Press, 815 Second Avenue, New York, 
N. Y. 10017). 

The resources listed below are brief in order to fit into the Yearbook. A 
more complete bibliography will go out to all branches in August or September 
when the list of new officers is available. If anyone would like suggestions on 
a particular topic, I would be happy to share the materials that I have found. 

A DIRECTORY OF RESOURCES FOR ADULTS ($1.00 from the Seabury 
Bookstore, address above) contains some 500 resources listed under the topics: 
The Bible, The Church's History, Our Faith, The Church's Worship, The Church's 
Work, Living As Christians. 

There are three pressing issues confronting us as Christians in today's 
world: theological freedom, ecumenical relations, and the present crisis in our 
American Communities which can be termed the American crisis, the urban 
crisis, the problem of the dispossessed or the racial crisis. 

THEOLOGICAL FREEDOM 

The one resource that I have found concerning theological freedom is 
THEOLOGICAL FREEDOM AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, REPORT OF 
THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH ($2.95 from 
the Seabury Bookstore). Part I of the book seeks to answer the critical questions 
raised by theological discussion and social criticism. Part II consists of papers 
written by ten of the advisors in response to these questions. 

ECUMENICAL RELATIONS 

ECUMENICAL ENCOUNTERS ($0.95 from the Seabury Bookstore) con- 
tains background information on action taken toward Church reunipn prior to 
the Consultation on Church Union. 

43 



CONSULTATION ON CHURCH UNION 1967, PRINCIPLES OF CHURCH 
UNION, GUIDELINES FOR STRUCTURE, AND A STUDY GUIDE ($0.25 
from Forward Movement Publication, 422 Sycamore Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 
45202) — contains general information about COCU and study suggestions. 

ALL IN EACH PLACE ($0.25 from Forward Movement Publications) is 
a general study guide on ecumenism that has been used effectively in inter-parish 
groups. 

CHURCH UNION IN FOCUS (The United Church Book Store, 1505 Race 
Street, Philadelphia, Pa.) is useful in considering the issues raised by COCU 
and provides considerable help for leaders as they plan study sessions. 

LIVING ROOM DIALOGUES and SECOND LIVING ROOM DIALOGUES 
($1.00 each from the Department of Publication Services, National Council of 
Churches, 475 Riverside Drive, New York, N. Y. 10027) are guides for inter- 
denominational study groups. The first was used successfully in many com- 
munities and the second one promises to be a very useful sequel. 

A FOUNDATION FOR DIALOGUE is a set of two color filmstrips with 
guide, script and record. We hope to have this available for $1.00 rental from 
the Diocesan Library of Filmstrips, National School and Industrial Corporation, 
14-20 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, N. C. 27602. This should be an extremely use- 
ful filmstrip providing sound background in ecumenical relations. 

CRISIS IN AMERICAN LIFE 

WEALTH AND WANT IN ONE WORLD ($1.95 from the Seabury Book- 
store), NEED IS OUR NEIGHBOR ($1.75 from the Seabury Bookstore) and 
STUDY ACTION MANUAL ON AFFLUENCE AND POVERTY ($1.25 from 
the Seabury Bookstore) were published by Friendship Press as part of the mis- 
sion study theme recently. They provide material and a guide for studying the 
problem of the co-existence of affluence and poverty in one world. 

REPORT OF THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMISSION ON CIVIL 
DISORDERS (Bantam Books paperback: $1.25 from bookstores and news stands) 
is "must" reading for any serious consideration of the crisis. The summary of 
the report as printed in the Neiv York Times plus the report of the Governor's 
Commission on Civil Disorders as summarized by the Neivark Sunday News are 
contained in a booklet entitled CIVIL DISORDERS, U. S. A., REPORTS AND 
RECOMMENDATIONS, distributed by Church in Metropolis, Joint Strategy and 
Action Committee, Room 552, 475 Riverside Drive, New York, N. Y. 10027 at 
the rate of 8 for $1.00 and 50 for $6.00. 

RIOTS U. S. A., 1765-1965 ($3.95 from the Seabury Bookstore) is a readab! - 
comprehensive historical treatment of mob violence in this country, giving a 
new perspective for understanding today's climate of violence. 

THE CRISIS OF CULTURAL CHANGE ($1.65 paperback from the Sea- 
bury Bookstore) invites the reader to an appreciative participation in the world 
evolving in our midst. The opening statement in the Preface reads: "Although 
Christians in every age must struggle to recognize and respond imaginatively 
to the power of God in the world, we are called today to exercise this ministry 
amidst the fastest, deepest, and most extensive cultural change the world has 
known." 

CITIZEN POWER AND SOCIAL CHANGE, THE CHALLENGE TO 
THE CHURCHES ($2.00 paperback from the Seabury Bookstore) is a readable 
and timely book that discussess the role and activity of local churches and their 
members in working with citizen organizations for social change. 

44 



THE EDGE OF THE GHETTO, A STUDY OF CHURCH INVOLVEMENT 
IN COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION ($2.25 paperback from the Seabury Book- 
store) is a careful study in depth based on a detailed investigation of the inter- 
action of six Roman Catholic and Protestant local churches and a mass com- 
munity organization in an area of racial change in southwest Chicago during 
the six-year period 1959-1965. 

P IS FOR POVERTY is a filmstrip and record which we hope to have avail- 
able for $1.00 rental from National School and Industrial Corporation, 14-20 
Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, N. C. 27602. 

CITIES, U. S. A. (available at $1.00 rental from National School and In- 
dustrial Corporation, address above) is a filmstrip with guide, script and record 
which gives a clear picture of how crucial urban problems are and of their im- 
plications for all of us. 

THE CHANGING CITY (16 mm., color, 16 minute motion picture, avail- 
able from the North Carolina Adult Film Project through your Public Library) 
emphasizes the need for planning in areas where city and suburbs meet other 
cities in forming a megalopolis. 

CHALLENGE OF URBAN RENEWAL (16 mm., color, 28 minute motion 
picture, available through your Public Library) is designed to encourage sup- 
port for urban renewal programs. 

WALK IN MY SHOES (16 mm., back & white, 54 minute motion picture,

tudes and feelings towards current racial problems and their solutions. 

CRISIS IN NORTH CAROLINA COMMUNITIES 

SOUTHERN POLITICS ($2.95 Vintage Books paperback, available at book- 
stores and newsstands) and THE MIND OF THE SOUTH ($1.65 Vintage 
Books paperback) are two background books helpful in considering the crisis 
of communities in this part of the nation. 

THE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964 (16 mm., black & white, 
26 minute motion picture, available through your Public Library or North 
Carolina Fund Film Library, P. O. Box 687, Durham, N. C. 27702) uses anima- 
tion and still photographs to describe in lay language the provisions and promise 
of the Economic Opportunity Act, especially the concept of community action. 

THE FIRST 100 (16 mm., black & white, 28 minute motion picture, available 
from N. C. Fund Film Library and through your Public Library) shows the variety 
and extent of volunteer services provided in seven N. C. communities by the first 
100 college students who were in the N. C. Volunteers summer program. 

THE NORTH CAROLINA FUND: A NEW SOURCE OF HOPE FOR THE 
PEOPLE OF POVERTY (16 mm., black & white, 20 minute motion picture, avail- 
able from the N. C. Fund Film Library and through your Public Library) uses 
still pictures to tell how and why the N. C. Fund was established, what the 
Fund's goals are, and how local communities have become involved in N. C.'s 
anti-poverty effort.

from the N. C. Fund Film Library and through your Public Library) shows the 
activities of N. C. Fund-sponsored community action program in Craven County

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. Don P. Blanton 

Country Club Dr., Lexington 27292 

Christian Social Relations is that part of a Christian's life that shows where 
his heart really lies. It is also the area that shows where the heart of the parish 
lies. 

We have been marked with the sign of the Cross. Whatever we do in life 
is a reflection on that sign and a witness of our belief. It may be a good wit- 
ness or a poor one. It all depends on where our hearts really are. Do we try to 
love the Lord with all our hearts, minds and souls, and our neighbors as our- 
selves? Do we want to follow the unselfish ways of our Master, believing that 
the last shall be first, and that in losing our lives, we shall find them? Most of 
us want this very much; unfortunately, this is not a condition at which we can 
arrive once and maintain permanently. We must be constantly renewing our 
commitment to these beliefs. No one can do this for us. The burden of responsi- 
bility is on each one of us. We can choose or refuse to work at being a Chris- 
tian. God gives us the freedom to make that choice. He gives us the freedom 
to look for His image in each individual we encounter no matter how despicable 
he may be. For surely Christ will not be recognized in us until we can see Him 
in others. 

At this time in the history of the world we seem to be admonished to either 
live together as brothers and children of God or to die by ourselves. Some of us 
will be unable to make the necessary commitment and will fall by the wayside 
as seeds in shallow soil. Some, however, will be able to quicken the spirit within 
them and grow in strength. The signs of the times seem to be saying to Chris- 
tians, either get in or get out! 

The times seem also to be saying, let the love of God show forth in our 

actions — for He has no other hands than ours. This is the hour of rededication. 

The time, hopefully, when most of us will be able to say "As for me and my 

household, we will serve the Lord." 

I. Some suggestions on how to become involved in meeting the needs of the 

community: 

1. Form an ecumenical council of ministers and lay people. Include churches 
from the poverty areas. Discussion within this group can bring out the 
unmet needs of the community. Together you can find solutions. Remem- 
ber that the poor are more aware of their problems than we are. They 
also want to have a share in solving them. 

2. Towns that have Church Women United could use this organization for 
study and action. 

3. Call on the director of your community action agency (this vehicle of 
the Office of .Economic Opportunity sometimes is known by other names. 
Find out what projects are already in effect and how your parish can 
help with these or new ones. 

4- Make an appointment with the superintendent of your school system 
and find out how you and your parish can help with the problems in 
education. 

5. Check with the directors of Public Health & Welfare. They can suggest 
unmet needs to you. 

6. Talk with your mayor and city and county commissioners. 

7. The director of your Recreation Department will have suggestions.

8. The United Fund Agencies might have helpful information. 

9. Acquaint yourself with the activities of the North Carolina Fund. The 
latter can suggest resource people who can tell you about all kinds of 
problems.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Sterling A. Stoudemire, Secretary 
712 Gimghoul Road, Chapel Hill 27514 

The purpose of this department is to encourage active participation by our 
Churchwomen in the mission of the Church, by: 

1. Praving daily, mentioning each one of our missionaries by name. Use the 
prayer manual "Far and Near". 

2. Try to have at least one mission program a year for your Branch meet- 
ing. Give news of where the missionaries are and what they are doing. Have a 
map of the world, and show where they are located. 

3. Write to the missionaries, especially at Christmas, Easter, and on their 
birthdays, giving news of the Diocese. 

4. You will receive information regarding top priority projects endorsed by 
the Diocesan Department of World Missions. Please add to this information by 
learning all you can about the chosen areas and their peoples. Keep your Clergy 
and Vestry as well as the women of your Branch up-to-date on World Mission. 

5. Try to see that your Branch budget is divided 50% inside the parish, and 
50% outside. Try to give to Missions through the Diocesan pledge so that the 
money can be sent out "in force" through recommended projects that have been 
given first priority. 

6. The missionary Christmas gift is an extra and is to be sent by November 
15th to and made payable to Mrs. Sterling A. Stoudemire, Secretary, 712 Gimghoul 
Road, Chapel Hill, N. C. 27514, who sends the total amount from all the Branches 
to the Diocesan Treasurer. The total of all the money collected is divided equally 
among all the active and retired missionaries listed on the assignment sheet. 
Please be sure the Branch Treasurer knows she is to send the check to the Secre- 
tary of Missions and not to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

7. Send all other monetary gifts for missionaries or missions, domestic or 
overseas, directly from the Branch to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Treasurer 
made payable to her with instructions as to allocation of said checks. If it is 
going overseas, please enclose the amount of postage needed. 

8. By action of the Annual Meeting, our Epiphany Offering is for Jocelyn 
Gordon. Please publicize the Epiphany Offering and see that it is sent to the 
Diocesan Churchwomen's Treasurer.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Walter W. Burbank, Treasurer 
545 Winfield Blvd., S.E., Concord, N. C. 28025 

The United Thank Offering has grown from $82.71 in 1886 to $4,917,77293 
in 1967. With this increase in money the usefulness of this offering to the Church 
has grown with it. Over half of the missionary work of the whole Episcopal 
Church is made possible by this offering, and it will continue to play a vital part 
in our Church's future. 

The women of this diocese have offered their praise and thanks to God in 
a very tangible way. $27,404.51 has been given by them this year. Then, at the 
United Thank Offering Service at the Triennial in Seattle, I had the great privi- 
lege of placing in the golden Aim Basin a certificate for $92,155.63 which was 
given by you through your Ingatherings for the Triennium 1964-67 — an increase 
of $7,000.00 over the past Triennium. 

Let's remember that a coin dropped with a prayer into a United Thank 
Offering Box becomes a "miraculous thing" and it can go places and do things 
that we by ourselves are unable to do. 

(Report prepared by Mrs. Oliver Roddey, outgoing U. T. O. Treasurer.) 

Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer

2. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, 
St. Luke's Day, and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate 
Service of Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service 
need not be held on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering 
at a regular Sunday Service in order that more people may become aware 
of it. 

3. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingather- 
ing can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participa- 
tion, as well as the amount received. 

4. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation 
Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 
number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at 
the Ingathering Service. 

CONVOCATION TREASURER: 

Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy 
to DIOCESAN U.T.O. TREASURER with one check covering the total 
offering from your Convocation. 

53 



DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation Chairmen 
with instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a 
check to Mr. Lindley M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, 
New York, N. Y., for the total amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in March, 
after calendar year has been closed. Send report to Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the Offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for 
the Diocese. The Convocation Treasurers or their representatives are 
asked to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from 
their Convocation for the year, which they present with the Offering. 



Diocesan Alms Basin 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their 
old pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W. Roberts of St. Philip's Church, Durham. A 
committee was appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this 
project. This committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chair- 
man, Mrs. U. T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro 
and The Right Reverend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. 

Parish U.T.O. Custodians collected cherished mementos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 
who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal 
of the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that 
were donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 

54 



at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be 
obtained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN 
MINISTRIES 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Road, Durham, N. C. 27707 

COLLEGE WORK is the attempt to help students, faculty, and others on 
campus continue to BE the church where they are. It depends upon the efforts of 
many . . . the chaplains (our diocese has 7 full-time) who provide the Word 
and the Sacraments, teach, counsel, the parish churches which express interest and 
support in a number of ways (many parish priests are part-time chaplains) and 
of course, every Christian whose prayerful concern provides for the extension of 
this serving ministry. 

How to Start as Branch Chairman — 

1. Get the file of your predecessor and talk with her. 

2. Get the names of young people from your parish who will be going away 
to school in the fall (use bulletin or newsletter to request this information if 
not available from church office.) 

3. Send one Card of Commendation per student (going away) to the chaplain 
or parish priest in the academic community. Often this is the only way they 
know the student is on campus. Complete cards carefully, including comments. 
You may order cards (free) from The Executive Council of the Episcopal 
Church, 815 Second Ave., N. Y. C. 10017. 

It's important that you evaluate the needs of your area since so many factors 
enter the picture . . . size of parish, number of students away, location (in, 
near or far from an academic community). Talk with your rector, parents, chap- 
lain and faculty members (if near a campus) . . • any interested person to dis- 
cover needs and set goals. When you come up with good ideas, see how they work 
out, then share so we can list them in next year's yearbook to help someone else. 
Patterns of college work are changing (as are most patterns) to meet new chal- 
lenges. This calls for imaginative and flexible planning. There are many ways, 
specific and general, that we can be a part of college work, no doubt many that 
your branch or parish uses. Consider all the possibilities and decide which are 
best in your situation. 

Remember students, teachers, chaplains, college workers in prayers, corporate 
and individual. 

Keep in touch with students ... by personal letters, cards at special times, 
church bulletins, newsletters, devotional materials, subscription to The Church 
Review. 

Plan a corporate communion breakfast for students before they leave in the 
fall and when they return for the Christmas holidays. 

Plan "So You're Going to College" sessions for High School students after 
graduation, asking rector to write letter of congratulations to graduates enclosing 
pamphlet "So You're Going To College". 

Include a college work item in parish budget (funds continue to be needed for 
Program — see April letter for items included in Program — and for scholarships for 
local students to attend camps, conferences, summer work projects). 

Support the Church Society for College Work in its pioneering program 
(membership $10 yr. to receive all publications, student memberships begin at $1) 
2 Brewer St., Cambridge, Mass. 

Welcome students back into full parish life when they return. 

Parishes in Academic Communities have additional opporunities to — Welcome 

56 



all students and faculty to the parish fellowship — greeting them at services, invit- 
ing them to share in worship, choir, church school, social functions, etc. (some 
parishes make up a sheet listing all functions to give students). 

Invite students into homes, remembering to include foreign students . . . 
perhaps "adopt" a student. 

Talk with chaplain or priest serving the schools, offer assistance, learn of 
needs (ask for names of married students so that couples may visit them). 

Assist the student group, or if none exists, help to organize- 

Have an "Open House" at the parish house, student center, rectory, or at a 
faculty home near campus. 

Assist in providing funds for vocational and other conferences, books, special 
programs and chaplain's discretionary fund. 

As Branch Chairman you'll want to keep the church's mission to the campus 
before the churchwomen and the parish, particularly the opportunities within the 
diocese. Planning a special college work program for the branch (or better, for 
the parish) is one way. Another year-round way is to display college work ma- 
terials . . . posters, pamphlets etc. and to use the tract track. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES is the name given to the total ministry of all 
Christians . . . lay, ordained, and special. Traditionally the special concern of 
ECW has been the recruiting of women for full-time work. This continues to be 
an important responsibility but now we stress opportunities for men, women and 
young people in unified parishes. The purpose of Christian Ministries is to make 
these opportunities for full or part-time church work known. 

As Branch Chairman you should be informed on types of professional and 
volunteer opportunities (qualifications, training, etc.) offered by the church. Some 
ways of alerting others to the needs are: 

Plan a branch or parish program on church vocations and volunteer programs. 

Work with the rector to find ways of reaching the young people, perhaps a 
specific program once a year for the church school and youth group. Ask him to 
include vocational opportunities for women when he preaches on the ministry. 

Inform young people (High School and College) about Summer Service 
Projects. 

Start a "Talent File" listing interests and talents of communicants which may 

be used for volunteer work in the church or community- 
Plan a Vocational Guidance Conference or workshop (with other parishes 

or branches) for Jr. and Sr. H. S. students in your area. 

Place recruiting materials in tract rack, using posters and brochures on 

bulletin board. Use parish bulletin for announcements. Supply High School Ad- 
visors with literature. 

Pray that the right persons will offer themselves for the work of the church; 

ask that prayers for recruits be included in church, church school, programs for 

youth, men, and women. 

In summary, we must all work to provide a climate in which young people can 

see challenges in church vocations — remembering that attitudes expressed in the 

home are more important than any other motivation.

PROMOTION 

Mrs. Thomas H. Collins, Secretary 
15 Lake Shore Drive, Chapel Hill 27514 

The Branch Secretary of Promotion has three basic duties: 

1. To keep members of her own Branch informed. This may be done through 
a monthly ECW Newsletter, stories in the local newspapers, announcements on 
the local radio station, and items in the weekly church bulletin. 

2. To interpret and report Branch news of any interest to the general pub- 
lic through the press, radio, and TV, and maintain a positive image of the Episco- 
pal Churchwomen. 

3. To serve as a liaison between Branch and Diocesan news services, send 
stories to the Diocesan Secretary of Promotion for use in the North Carolina 
Churchman, or for distribution throughout public media in the Diocese. (The 
Churchman deadline is a month in advance of publication — this is, in order 
to have a story printed in the September Churchman, please send it to me by 
August 1). 

Suggestions: 

Keep a record. A good Press Book should include clippings of ECW stories 
which are printed, plus a list of deadlines and requirements for the guidance of 
your successor. Keep sample scripts of radio and television announcements or 
programs featuring Churchwomen and their activities. 

Capitalize on local stories. Send your local paper a short story on women 
in your church who will be attending annual meeting or convocations. Promote 
special events in your parish. 

Please call on me, your diocesan secretary, as often as you'd like.

DIOCESAN MATERIAL AID 

Mrs. Norman A. Sippel, Chairman 
500 Brinn Drive, Sanford 27330

compassion for those in need. 

Let us Churchwomen work together on this World Relief Program by 
providing: 

Clothing for the NEEDY 
Medicine for the SICK 
Food for the HUNGRY 

All monetary contributions are to be sent to: 

Treasurer, Diocese of North Carolina 

P. O. Box 17025 

Raleigh, North Carolina 27609 

Will the President of each Branch please appoint someone to promote this 
program. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. E. H. Dudley, Director 
3638 Park Road, Charlotte 28209 

The PURPOSE of the Church Periodical Club is to provide reading material 
for those who could not otherwise obtain it all over the world, in missions, 
hospitals, seminaries, schools, and colleges, to the clergy, teachers, lay workers, 
and missionaries. It is the only organization of the Episcopal Church devoted 
solely to the ministry of the printed word. 

Wherever the church is at work, in your community, in this country and 
overseas, the CPC sends reading material, ALL WITHOUT CHARGE. The 
money to carry on this ministry comes from gifts to the CPC National Books 
Fund. Requests for books come to the CPC from every continent in the world, 
and are filled AS FAR AS YOUR GIFTS WILL PERMIT. 

In our diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, 
headed by a diocesan Director of CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in 
the branches. 



Suggested Procedure for CPC Secretaries 

(1) To Promote CPC in Your Branch: 

Obtain all records and literature from your predecessor in office. 

Study the CPC Handbook in order to familiarize yourself with CPC work 

and purpose. If you do not have a copy write the Director immediately. 

Study directions in the 1968-69 Handbook for the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

Inform and enlist the cooperation of your clergy. 

Promote The Episcopalian and The Living Church in your parish. 

Keep a supply of CPC literature on hand. Distribute it at every opportunity. 

Help to keep your parish library and tract rack adequately supplied. 

Observe CPC Sunday, (Usually the first Sunday in October) in your Parish 

if agreeable with your rector. CPC Folders and CPC Offering Envelopes 

are available through the Director or National Office. 

61 



Present a CPC program in your Branch each year. Make it simple, but in- 
clusive of all phases of work. Emphasize the purpose: "To provide reading 
material for those who could not otherwise obtain it." 
Use the CPC Prayer at chapter and parish meetings. 

Make brief announcements about CPC in your chapter meetings. Report 
current CPC news at every opportunity. Stimulate interest by sending paper- 
backs to our men in Vietnam. 

Find people and places in your community to minister to. Suggestions: 

Pass on Church School and adult study material to mission Churches 
near you. 

Distribute regularly any reading material to mental or other institutions 
(Hospitals, jails, rest homes, etc.) which is acceptable to them. 

Distribute recent magazines to school libraries where there is usually 
a need. 

Take magazines to shut-ins or to families who do not subscribe. 

Solicit help from the Episcopal Young Churchmen in distributing the 

above material. The whole parish should be aware of the work of 

the CPC. 
Keep an accurate record of the CPC work done in your parish, and the 
contributions made to the National Books Fund. This will help tremendously 
in filling out your Annual CPC Report blank in January. 

IMPORTANT: Send all CPC contributions to Diocesan Director. DO NOT 
remit to diocesan treasurer. An individual file card is kept for each branch. 
You will aid in being accurate if you will remember to (a) send contributions 
directly to the Director, (b) send contribution by check only, and (c) transmit 
with letter noting source of contribution. 

(2) To Promote Gifts to the National Books Fund: 

Make every effort to see that the Books Fund is included in branch budget 
each year. People are interested in where their money goes. 

CPC SUNDAY. (1st Sunday in October) Some parishes contribute their 
offering to CPC National Books Fund. Others use the CPC Offering Enve- 
lopes. Don't forget to use your CPC Prayer. 

Coin Card. This little "gimmick" produces amazing results for the Books 
Fund. Take a Coin Card to meetings, and point out how dimes can BUY 
A BOOK. 

Memorial Gifts. Present to Churchwomen the idea of sending a personal 
check to the Books Fund in memory of their friends and loved ones. By 
sending the check to the Director, your Branch will get credit for it. She in 
turn will write an acknowledgment to the family. 

Silver Offering. One parish has chosen this very simple and effective man- 
ner of increasing their Books Fund contribution. A silver offering can be 
made at the chapter meetings or a CPC tea can be given. 
Half-Price Sale. Members may be asked to bring one-month-old magazines 
to Chapter meetings for half-price selling to each other. Older ones can be 
taken to the local institutions. Save the money for the Books Fund! 
Paper Drive. Many organizations find these projects profitable to raise funds 
for a good cause. A successful paper drive could bring in money for the 
Books Fund. 

Bazaar. In disposing of your Bazaar monies, remember the Books Fund! 
Book Fair. Episcopal Churchwomen could clean their attics, basements and 

62 



book shelves in order to donate their books for a Book Fair. Make it festive 
by serving a cup of coffee. Another way to contribute to the Books Fund ! 

Share Your Ideas. New ways are forever being found by individuals and 
groups with imagination. Write the Director of your neiv projects to earn 
money for the Books Fund. Other branches will be glad to hear about them.

PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all peoples everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 
with Thy children in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 



Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and tht 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 



tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL, CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eighty -seventh Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS 

Henderson, North Carolina 
May 6, 7, 1969 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1969 

Instead of listing my "official acts" as your President during the past year, I 
should like to think back with you over several occasions on which I have 
represented you and try to take you with me in imagination. It is impossible 
to say that a particular event has meant more to me than any other. Each has 
its individual significance. Every moment I am aware that I stand purely 
as a symbol of this diverse yet deeply unified group known as the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. You are there with me where- 
ever I may be. 

In the spring I went to the Provincial Synod at Sewanee. I met with 
the Presidents of the other dioceses of the Fourth Province and listened 
to their experiences and experiments in structure changes, social involve- 
ment, study and worship and to the relationships between the various 
Dioceses and their Churchwomen. Always with me was the sense of the special 
character of North Carolina, with its diversity and flexibility. Few dioceses 
have our diversity and, although differences sometimes seem like difficulties, 
they are a source of great strength. We have Churches of varying sizes in 
fairly large cities Avhere the mainstream of communicants is involved in industry, 
commerce and the professions. Other churches are academically oriented and 
others serve those of us who still feel that there is a life of fulfilment on the 
land. Some branches are wealthy. Others are caught up in the poverty of over- 
crowded urban areas or in the equally perplexing problems of rural depopulation. 
Some branches are black, some are white, some are mixed. As I listened to the 
other Diocesan Presidents, I would find myself identifying first with one group in 
my own diocese, then another ; sometimes with the activists and at other times 
with those whose religious experience and expression is more contemplative 
and less obvious. I felt grateful for our diversity and for the spirit of indepen- 
dence and of interdependence which prevails among us. 

I was assigned to a group considering the unemployed and underemployed. 
This was led by Dr. William Pollard, priest, nuclear physicist and author 
from Oak Ridge, Tennessee. I learned of the co-operation between industry, the 
university and the government in experimental on the job training, supplemented 
by theoretical training in the Oak Ridge area, and came home to find that many 
Churchwomen are involved here in trying to help overcome this great problem 
of adequate employment. We are less spectacular, but are involved as individuals 
and as groups all over the diocese in furthering education and training for all 
ages. 

A completely different and awe-inspiring experience was to carry the wine 
in the offertory procession at the Diocesan service of Ordination. Walking wtih 
the President of the Laymen of the Diocese, I knew that, quite apart from my 
own offering and rededication, this was a symbol for all the Churchwomen and 
a pledge of our support of the new clergy and our continued support and appre- 
ciation of those by whom we had already been led. 

In the Fall I went to Atlanta to represent you at an area meeting on the 
Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. Here we were reminded among other 
things, of the terrible problems of refugees in so many parts of the world — 
displaced Arabs from Israel; Pakistanis and Indians caught up in border unrest; 

10 



refugees to both east and west from the Communist countries, not to mention 
the homeless and displaced in Viet Nam. We were reminded of second generation 
refugees who have never had a home except a refugee camp .This country, in more 
simple days, could say with open arms "Give me your tired, your poor, your 
huddled masses yearning to breathe free" but in the complexity of today's world, 
the ''homeless, tempest-tossed" need passports, sponsors and visas. Churchwomen 
have been much involved in this, especially in helping with the resettlement of 
refugees from Cuba. Although in North Carolina few of us have had any 
opportunity to offer personal relocation, we have helped with our money, our 
prayers and our understanding. I have sometimes been asked by branches 
whether they should give special gifts to those organizations or people who are 
included in our Diocesan Churchwomen's budget. This has been asked specifi- 
cally several times about the Presiding Bishop's Fund. The answer is that the 
need is growing in almost geometric progression. It can never be fully met and 
we can never give too much. Two study books, "Twice in a Lifetime" about 
the Middle East and the "Resource Guide on World Hunger" are easily avail- 
able to branches wanting to study this tragedy more deeply. Our Diocesan 
Director of Material Aid, Mrs. Norman Sippell, can help you obtain them. 

To continue in this detail would be impossible. To sit at the gracious invita- 
tion of the President and faculty of Saint Augustine's College as a platform 
guest is a joy of a special kind which makes me acutely grateful that you have 
entrusted me with your Presidency. Here I am aware of your concern and 
support of our college students who are questioning life so penetratingly today. 
Here we pray for wisdom together. To learn what "Child Care Services" really 
entail at a meeting of the Board of Managers of Thompson Orphanage enables 
me to pass on to you a glimpse of the lives of these children for whom we do 
care. To represent you at the ground breaking for the new wing of the Penick 
Memorial Home, brought another opportunity to show your affection for our 
friends who live there and who extend to all of us such warm hospitality. 

Through the meetings of the Diocesan Council and the Finance Committee, 
of which I am a member, and also through our Diocesan Churchwomen's Board 
and Committee meetings, I learn of the fulness of our life together — the joy 
when a new Church is completed or when a branch becomes deeply involved 
in a Community House, or in a tutoring program, or in feeding hungry children 
or in truly identifying with a foreign mission field in a spiritual and a practical 
way. Perhaps more than anything else has come the realization that we can 
at times become polarized in our opinions to a degree which would destroy 
most secular organizations, but through the grace of God and because we are 
united solely on the basis of our common faith and commitment to Christ and 
His Church, we grow as individuals, maybe divided in our specific ideas, but 
united in His love, living under the Commandment to "Love one another". This 
is to me the essence of the Churchwomen. 

There are one or two details of our work during the past year which I 
feel I must mention. Acting on a mandate from the reaction sheets to previous 
Spring Planning Days, this year, instead of specific workshops, our Christian 
Education Secretary, Mrs. Merritt, supported by the Diocesan Director of Pro- 
gram, the Rev. William Hethcock and the Board of the Churchwomen, led a series 
of convocational meetings in which we were urged to look at the whole picture 
of our local structure, consider our basic aims as committed Christians and then 
try to crystalize our findings so as to be able to implement our commitment in 
whatever way was most feasible in our immediate situations. This type of 
approach can, of course, have no quick overall answer to the question "What 
should the Churchwomen be doing". It is a catalystic approach to free our 
spirits and thoughts so that we can analyze our own branches without depart- 

11 



mental restriction. This, however, did leave a gap for some people who are 
incoming branch officers and feel a need for more specific data. To meet this 
need we are setting aside time at the Vade Mecum Conference for program 
discussion and informal departmental workshops. 

Your packets contain reports from the various Diocesan officers. Please 
take time to read these and pass them on to the appropriate women in your 
branch. You may, or may not still have a corresponding officer, but from the 
reports your branch can get a condensed idea of what the Diocesan Church- 
women find important and have been doing. 

I purposely did not send out "report blanks" to branches this year, but 
asked for and received several very helpful informal reports on projects, studies 
and changes in chapter emphasis and internal structure. Sometimes we feel 
disenchanted, but the very last letter I received said "New life seems to have 
come into our branch as our attendance has just about doubled and those 
attending seem truly interested in what is going on". This is from a large 
Church in a busy area where there are many claims on a woman's time. 

In closing I would say that the greatest thrill to me as your President is 
when you invite me to your branches. I have much regretted the occasions on 
which I have had to decline. I like to come just to be with you, not necessarily 
to give a program and I definitely want no "V.I. P." treatment. Coming from 
a branch with a total of 13 members, active and semi-active, no group is too 
small, and there is much that I can learn from a large group.

adoption of the changes, as follows: 

14 



Combination of No. 6 and No. 7.

for each office to be filled. Nominations may be made from the floor of the Annual 
Meeting by any delegate, provided the consent of the nominee has been obtained.

place in nomination a sufficient number of nominees to include both delegates and 
alternates. Nominations may be made from the floor. The remaining delegates 
and alternates shall be elected in the order of the vote received. In case of tie 
vote, the President shall designate the order.

an extended discussion, a motion was made by Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson and sec- 
onded by Mrs. P. B. Smith to amend the Budget to include Thompson Orphanage. 
The motion failed after a standing vote was taken. The $22,000.00 Budget for

REPORT OF COURTESY COMMITTEE 



We have much to be thankful for today. We have been blessed by beautiful 
weather. The Rev. Bob Davis and the Episcopal Churchwomen of Holy Innocents 
have given us an especially warm and cordial welcome. We have enjoyed the 
beauty of this lovely old church. 

Mary Lou Parham and her committee have meticulously planned every detail 
for a smoothly run meeting, and for our comfort. We are grateful, too, to the 
Churchwomen from St. Stephen's, and to Mrs. Zollicoffer, the presdient of Holy 
Innocents Branch. 

We extend our thanks to our gracious and charming president for a well 
planned and well dispatched meeting, to our hard working executive board, to 
Mrs. Ewell for sharing her experiences with us and giving us a glimpse at what 
could happen, to our Bishops for taking time out from their busy schedules for 
this brief interlude with us, and to our clergy guests who have made our meeting 
so meaningful by their presence. 

"Thank You" sounds pretty inadequate; but, until some better phrase is found, 
to everyone who helped make this meeting one to remember, from the bottom of 
our hearts, we thank you. 

Mrs. P. B. Smith, Chairman 

Mrs. C. I. Martin 

Mrs. W. A. Kitchin 

Mrs. E. K. Atkinson

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of The Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1968, and the related state- 
ment of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examination 
was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accord- 
ingly included such tests of the accounting records and other procedures as were 
deemed appropriate in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1968, and the related 
statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present fairly 
the recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended December 31, 
1968, and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with generally 
accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the pre- 
ceding year.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev- Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

Episcopal Churchwomen is an organization within the Church providing 
additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and service. 
It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the Church; 
to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and to 
pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 62. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 65. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known 
as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 
composed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should 
be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 
Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. Gordon Williams 
103 Liberty Lane, Greensboro 27410 

At the 1969 Spring Planning Days the Churchwornen all expressed an urgent 
desire for more Peace, Serenity and enthusiasm. They wanted more quiet reflection 
and a positive "listening" to God. What better way can we find these than by 
active participation in our own church activities and worship services, and by 
attending the Quiet Days and Retreats offered to us by the Diocese. This year 
the Quiet Days will be on Oct. 8 and The Fall Retreat will be held at The 
Terraces Oct. 21-23, 1969. 

Following is a list of suggestions for Devotional Life Secretaries and a list 
of Readings: 



SUGGESTIONS FOR DEVOTIONAL LIFE 
SECRETARIES 

I. Suggested responsibilities — consult Rector and fit to parish needs 

A. Basic responsibilities 

1. Correlate plans with other officers — attend Executive Board Meetings 

2. Plan devotions for general and executive board meetings 

3. Work with chapter devotional life leaders on chapter devotions 

4. Cooperate with Diocesan Secretary of Devotional Life 

a. Pass on information 

b. Offer suggestions to her 

5. Learn enough about Convocation Quiet Days and Diocesan 

Retreats to interpret them to your group — urge attendance 

B. Further opportunities — Be alert to spiritual needs 

1. Suggest and help plan for Corporate Communions for special 
days and groups. 

2. Suggest and help plan for Quiet Days and Schools of Prayer 
on Parish level. 

3. Be prepared to help form Prayer Groups and Bible Study Groups 
if they are desired. 

4. If one is needed, help to assemble a bookshelf and tract rack of 
devotional material. Keep up to date on materials. Reading is 
essential to spiritual growth. 

5. Encourage the habit of private devotions and family prayer. 

6. Try to reach women not reached through regular meetings of 
Churchwornen. 

7. Plan with other denominations for World Day of Prayer and 
other activities. 

II. Techniques in preparing and leading devotions 

A. Allow plenty of time to prepare a service'. One prayer thoughtfully 
prepared can be more vital than a fifteen minute book review. 

B. Start with silent prayer. Remember that in all our prayers we seek first 
of all to be still in God's presence. This silence could be preceded by a 
line from a Psalm or by one of the Opening Sentences from Morning 
or Evening Prayer. 

43, 



C. In general, remember the classic aspects of prayer: Adoration and Praise; 
Confession and Absolution, Thanksgiving, Intercession and Petition, 
Listening and Dedication. 

D. Do not become stereotyped. Remember that the material and methods 
to be used are limited only by your imagination. Use records and poetry. 

E. Do not be afraid to use informality or contemporary language. Find 
a prayer and prarphrase to suit your needs. 

F. When leading, pray thoughtfully and slowly — pause between prayers. 

G. Keep services and prayers pertinent; consider subject of program; be 
flexible and don't plan too rigidly in advance. 

H. Devotions can be anywhere during the meeting. 

I. Enlist attention and group participation by means of litanies, prayers 
in unison, and by having others to take the service or to assist. 

J. When a clergyman is present, ask him to pronounce the benediction. 
Otherwise, change the wording from direct to indirect: "May the Lord 
bless us" rather than "bless you".

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Robert E. Merritt, Secretary 
832 Country Club Road, Mt. Airy 27030 



In this report there are suggestions for the branch secretary of Christian 
Education or anyone in the parish concerned with programs and study courses 
for adults. 

Planning the programs of study for general meetings and chapter meetings 
or interest groups should start with an understanding of how the study sponsored 
by the Churchwomen fits into the whole parish program of education. Many 
parishes now have a Christian Education Committee that is responsible for the 
parish program of education. The Secretary of Christian Education of the 
Churchwomen is often a member of the committee. Consult your rector both for 
help in understanding the thrust of your overall parish program and for sug- 
gestions of specific study programs. 

Some branches are finding interest groups a solution to some education 
problems. Significant learning takes place in small groups where all share a real 
concern for the subject they are studying. Also interest groups allow a branch to 
offer controversial topics which might be offensive to some members if all felt 
compelled to attend the same study course. 

As you work on the programs and study courses in your parish, you will 
find that taking a little extra time at the beginning before you actually consider 
program material will pay off both for you and your group. Train yourself a 
little by skimming ADULT EDUCATION PROCEDURES ($2.45 paperback from 
the Seabury Bookstore, 815 Second Avenue, New York, N. Y. 10017). Inspire 
yourself with new enthusiasm and lots of ideas by leafing through FINDINGS 
magazine. Your rector may have a file of back issues to share with you. Sub- 
scribe for yourself at $2.00 a year, Seabury Press, 815 Second Avenue, New York, 
N. Y. 10017. 

If you do not gain some general learning about adult education from 
FINDINGS, ADULT EDUCATION PROCEDURES, or some other source, you 
will find that specific suggestions for programs are not so helpful because the 
difficulty does not lie in finding program material but in selecting it and putting 
it to use in your particular situation. A successful adult education program does 
not depend so much on knowing lots of possible programs as it depends on under- 
standing what you are trying to do. The most enthusiastic reports I hear are 
coming from parishes where they are not just looking for good program material 
but are thinking over the purpose of their study and trying out new ways to 
work together toward better Christian education. 

Each parish has its own needs and its own special strengths and interests. 
Each group within a parish is also different. Rather than to try listing count- 
less program possibilities as I have done before, I will instead name several 
sources of material that you can order for yourself. They are probably in your 
church office already. If not, you might put them there for others to use. 

First, FINDINGS magazine: each issue of FINDINGS has several pages 
of resources for adult education in addition to articles describing especially suc- 
cessful programs in different parishes. A file of back issues of FINDINGS maga- 
zine will provide some training for you in what Christian education is all about 
and will give you numerous ideas. 

46 



If you want to spark a lively discussion or get your group involved in 
thinking together, you might try filmstrips, films or tapes. Our Diocese owns 
many filmstrips. They are available from National Film Service, 14-20 Glenwood 
Avenue, Raleigh, N. C. 27602 at a $2.00 rental fee. If your church office does 
not have a list of these films, you may write to the National Film Service and 
request a list. There are three recently acquired filmstrips of special current 
interest, as follows: 

CHRISTIAN WOMEN IN TODAY'S WORLD is a kit of two filmstrips 
with records designed "to help Christian women better understand themselves 
and thier role in today's world and discover ways they can find fulfillment 
through the fellowship of the church." 

CITIES, U.S.A. is a filmstrip with guide, script and record which gives a 
clear picture of how crucial urban problems are and of their implications for all 
of us. 

THE RACE BEFORE US is a filmstrip and record which attempts to make 
the following points: 

1. We live in a world of change, confusion, and conflict and we must learn 
to understand that world if we are to fulfill our mission effectively 
within it. 

2. Even as planning is important in all aspects of life, so planning responsibly 
and continually is especially important for us as the church if we are to 
be faithful partners with God. 

A catalogue which lists films and other audio-visuals, describes and evaluates 
them for you, is available from Mass Media Ministries, 2116 North Charles 
Street, Baltimore, Md. 21218. 

Your public library has hundreds of films available for the minimal cost 
of mailing from Chapel Hill. It will give you an idea of the quality and range 
of films in this collection to know that, in addtion to such well-known films as 
PARABLE and THE ADVENTURES OF AN ASTERISK, the following are 
among those available: 

AND THERE WAS LIGHT, 1966, 33 minutes, color; a visual history of 
the Bible utilizing 265 of the world's great religious works of art. 

BEYOND THESE HILLS, 1967, 13 minutes, black and white; community 
action is demonstrated by the people of Avery County, N. C, in the opening of 
a new waterworks system. The occasion brings a discussion between the evan- 
gelist Dr. Billy Graham and the Office of Economic Opportunity's Sargent 
Shriver as to bases for community action. 

THE DETACHED AMERICANS, 1964, 33 minutes, black and white; an 
examination of the problem of apathy in the contemporary American's relationship 
with his fellowman. Film based on a dramatization of the events surrounding a 
murder in Philadelphia where 38 neighbors watched — no one interfering or 
calling the police. Some social factors that are analyzed in an attempt to explain 
this detachment are job specialization, breakdown of family communications, 
urbanization, false standards in education, preoccupation with the acquisition of 
property, etc. A discussion film.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. James E. Davis, Secretary 
7 Beverly Drive, Durham 27707 

Christian Social Relations is that part of a Christian's life that shows where 
his heart really lies. It is also the area that shows where the heart of the parish 
lies. 

We have been marked with the sign of the Cross. Whatever we do in life 
is a reflection on that sign and a witness of our belief. It may be a good wit- 
ness or a poor one. It all depends on where our hearts really are. Do we try to 
love the Lord with all our hearts, minds and souls, and our neighbors as our- 
selves? Do we want to follow the unselfish ways of our Master, believing that 
the last shall be first, and that in losing our lives, we shall find them? Most of 
us want this very much; unfortunately, this is not a condition at which we can 
arrive once and maintain permanently. We must be constantly renewing our 
commitment to these beliefs. No one can do this for us. The burden of responsi- 
bility is on each one of us. We can choose or refuse to work at being a Chris- 
tian. God gives us the freedom to make that choice. He gives us the freedom 
to look for His image in each individual we encounter no matter how despicable 
he may be. For surely Christ will not be recognized in us until we can see Him 
in others. 

At this time in the history of the world we seem to be admonished to either 
live together as brothers and children of God or to die by ourselves. Some of us 
will be unable to make the necessary commitment and will fall by the wayside 
as seeds in shallow soil. Some, however, will be able to quicken the spirit within 
them and grow in strength. The signs of the times seem to be saying to Chris- 
tians, either get in or get out! 

The times seem also to be saying, let the love of God show forth in our 
actions — for He has no other hands than ours. This is the hour of rededication. 
The time, hopefully, when most of us will be able to say "As for me and my 
household, we will serve the Lord." 

I. Some suggestions on how to become involved in meeting the needs of the 
community: 

1. Form an ecumenical council of ministers and lay people. Include churches 
from the poverty areas. Discussion within this group can bring out the 
unmet needs of the community. Together you can find solutions. Remem- 
ber that the poor are more aware of their problems than we are. They 
also want to have a share in solving them. 

2. Towns that have Church Women United could use this organization for 
study and action. 

3. Call on the director of your community action agency (this vehicle of 
the Office of Economic Opportunity sometimes is known by other names. 
Find out what projects are already in effect and how your parish can 
help with these or new ones. 

4- Make an appointment with the superintendent of your school system 
and find out how you and your parish can help with the problems in 
education. 

5. Check with the directors of Public Health & Welfare. They can suggest 
unmet needs to you. 

6. Talk with your mayor and city and county commissioners. 

7. The director of your Recreation Department will have suggestions.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Secretary 
P. O. Box 637, Roxboro 27573 

RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BRANCH SECRETARY OF MISSIONS 

1. Pray daily for the mission of the Church at home and abroad. Use the 
prayer manual FAR AND NEAR. Order from Forward Movement publications, 
412 Sycamore St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. 

2. Suggest to the Program Committee the use of one or both of the 1969-70 
interdenominational study themes "Reconciliation in a Broken World" and 
"Toward Understanding China and the Chinese People". 

3. Cooperate with the Diocesan Task Force Committee on World Mission by 
promoting priority projects which they may recommend. 

4 See that your branch budget is divided 50% inside the parish and 50% 
outside if possible. Give to missions through the Diocesan pledge so that the 
money can be sent out "in force" through recommended projects that have been 
given first priority. 

5. Remember the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina, especially 
those assigned to your convocation. Pray for them by name and write to them 
periodically, giving news of the diocese. 

6. Remind your branch of the opportunity of participating in the Christmas 
gift for the missionaries affiliated with the Diocese of North Carolina, both 
active and retired. The total of all the money collected is divided equally among 
them and sent as a Christmas gift from the churchwomen of the diocese. All 
contributions must be sent by November 15th and made payable to Mrs. W. H. 
R. Jackson (address above), who sends the total amount to the Diocesan treasurer 
for distribution. 

7. By action of the Annual Meeting, the Epiphany Offering is for Jocelyn 
Gordon. Jocelyn works in India under the auspices of the Bible Churchmen's 
Missionary Society which is one of the mission organizations of the Church of 
England. However, she is largely dependent on the women of this diocese for her 
support. Please publicize the Epiphany Corporate Communion. The offering 
should be sent to Mrs. Garland McPherson, Treasurer, P.O. Box 176, Southern 
Pines, N. C. 28387. 

8. Send all other monetary gifts for missionaries or missions to Mrs. Garland 
McPherson, Treasurer, P.O. Box 176, Southern Pines, N. C. 28387. Make checks 
payable to her with instructions as to allocation of said checks.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Walter W. Burbank, Treasurer 
545 Winfield Blvd., S.E., Concord 28025 

The United Thank Offering has grown from $82.71 in 1886 to an offering 
of $1,352,714.06 in 1968. With this increase in money through the years, the 
usefulness of this offering to the church has grown. In order to meet the most 
urgent demands and needs in our world, the offering is no longer accumulated 
over a three year period but allocated on a yearly basis. This new procedure was 
voted by the 1967 Triennial Meeting to better answer the demands of change 
and crisis in today's world. Over half of the missionary work of the whole 
episcopal church is made possible by the United Thank Offering. It is a way of 
sharing God's blessings wherever there is need — from a leprosy mission in Addis 
Ababa, Ethopia, or a school building in Panama, to a neighborhood center in 
New Orleans, Louisiana. This offering will continue to play a vital part in our 
church's future. 

The women of this diocese have offered their praise and thanks to God in a 
very tangible way. This year $27,409.03 has been given by them. However, 
in order to keep pace with the needs of the times, we shall have to have more 
women participating in this great privilege of thanksgiving, service and praise. 
We cannot all go to the mission field, but our offerings and our prayers can 
go for us. They become instruments of a part that we can play in Mutual Res- 
ponsibility and Interdependence. A box, a coin, a prayer — such little effort, in 
participation, to accomplish so much! 

Fifteen copies of a new filmstrip entitled THIS CHANNEL OF LOVE have 
been distributed throughout the diocese, and are available for programs. This 
filmstrip gives an excellent picture of what the United 'Thank Offering grants 
are doing. A new filmstrip entitled THIS, THY CHILD is available. In 
September, 1968 when the thirty-six United Thank Offering grants were made, 
twenty-one were given directly to work with children and youth, and, in four 
additional grants, youth was involved. Because of this emphasis the new filmstrip 
shows three projects involving children: one in South America, one in Louisiana, 
and one in South Dakota. 

In these days of concern and turmoil it behooves us all to contemplate on 
Bishop Hines' words: "For it may be that we are in a 'moment of passing grace' 
given to us by God, that may never again reoccur, and in which we are given the 
opportunity to act together" ! 

Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer 

BRANCH: 

1. Be thoroughly informed about the UTO and how the money is allocated. 

2. Be sure every woman in your Parish has a Blue Box. Keep U.T.O. foremost 
in the minds of all members through leaflets, programs and announcements 
of interest. Order your Blue Boxes and envelopes from the Seabury Book 
Store, 815 Second Ave., New York, N. Y. 10017. 

3. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, 
St. Luke's Day, and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate 
Service of Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service 
need not be held on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering 
at a regular Sunday Service in order that more people may become aware 
of it. 

52 



4. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingather- 
ing can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participa- 
tion, as well as the amount received. 

5. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation Secretary- 
Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 
number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at 
the Ingathering Service. 

CONVOCATION SECRETARY-TREASURER: 

Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy 
to DIOCESAN U.T.O. TREASURER with one check covering the total 
offering from your Convocation. 

DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation Chairmen 
with instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a 
check to Mr. Lindley M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, 
New York, N. Y. 10017, for the total amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in March, 
after calendar year has been closed. Send report to Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the Offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for 
the Diocese. The Convocation Secretary-Treasurers or their representatives 
are asked to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from 
their Convocation for the year, which they present with the Offering. 



Diocesan Alms Basin 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their 
old pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W. Roberts of St. Philip's Church, Durham. A 
committee was appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this 
project. This committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chair- 
man, Mrs. U. T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro 
and The Right Reverend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. 

Parish U.T.O. Custodians collected cherished mementos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 

53 



who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal 
of the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that 
were donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 
at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be 
obtained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE 

WORK 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Road, Durham 27707 

It has been said that to define the work of the church on the college campuses 
of our nation is not only difficult but is many-faceted. The Rev. Ralph O. 
Marsh, Chaplain at the University of Georgia, says that college work is: 1) the 
extension of the church on the campuses of our colleges and universities and 
2) the last chance that the church has to touch the lives of many individuals 
while they are still receptive to the message of the Gospel. If we regard these 
as our major responsibilities, we as parents, churchpeople and churchwomen 
must "go where the action is" and lend a hand. 

The emphasis of our college work, as your secretary sees it, should be on 
an examination of the relevancy of our programs on the college campuses and 
new study to find out why the crisis of our times is taking place in our univer- 
sities and how the church should meet it. In September, 1969 a Symposium on the 
Church in the Campus Crisis will be held at Quail Roost Conference Center. 
Speakers and discussants will be distinguished chaplains, clergy, legislators, fac- 
ulty, as well as parents and students who can address themselves to these con- 
cerns. Material coming out of this conference, which has been graciously approved 
and supported by Bishop Fraser, will be funneled to all the chapters for thought- 
ful and provocative discussions next year. We hope the results of such a conference 
will help us in our college work in this diocese. Appended to this report is a list 
of suggested readings on which the college work chairmen can base campus-focused 
programs during this year. You will be receiving papers from our Symposium on 
the Church in the Campus Crisis by the middle of the year; your chairmen will 
be invited to attend this symposium also, and I hope will take back to the branches 
new ideas and new understanding. 

There are many ways your branch can participate in college work and each 
one must assess its own interests. Remember to use the beautiful prayer for "those 
who teach and those who learn" from time to time in your branch meetings. Keep 
in touch with your own students already in college and recognize those who are 
about to begin their college careers. If you are in a college area, work closely with 
the chaplain and college closests to you and offer him your talents and your time. 
He will know the directions in which the most effective help must move today. 
Why not plan a special college work display on your parish bulletin board during 
the coming year? You may write your diocesan officer for material at any time. 

The work of the Christian Ministries Secretary can be an exciting and re- 
warding one. As Branch Chairman you will want to know all the possibilities 
for a lay, ordained and special ministry. A special field is the recruitment of 
women for full-time work and this no longer is confined to the recruitment for the 
Order of Deaconnesses — there are many fields for social work in the church and 
this can be a special emphasis for a program by your Christian Ministries Secre- 
tary. See whether your rector can help you build up a file on the interests of your 
young people in careers; then you can send appropriate material to them about 
careers which might possibly interest them. 

Finally: let us keep in touch. Let us keep in touch with our young people, with 
their changing ideas, with the rectors and chaplains, and with the sources of good 
material to serve them.

PROMOTION 

Mrs. Thomas M. Collins, Secretary 
15 Lake Shore Drive, Chapel Hill 27514 

During the past year your Diocesan Secretary of Promotion has written 
stories every month about the Episcopal Churchwomen, for publication in the 
North Carolina Churchman; has covered Annual Meeting and Diocesan Board 
meetings at the Terraces in Southern Pines, and reported important activities for 
the Churchman; has sent stories to local newspapers throughout the Diocese on 
Churchwomen's activities; provided special coverage for Spring Planning Days 
by sending stories to local newspapers on convocation chairmen, board members, 
and host churches and their ECW leaders who took part in the Planning Days; 
and maintained liaison with promotion chairmen throughout the Diocese in order 
to help them with their work. She has also served as a member of the Department 
of Stewardship and Communication for the Diocese. 

'The following suggestions are offered as guidance for Secretaries of Promo- 
tion in the Branches: 

1. Keep members of your own Branch informed. This may be done through a 
monthly ECW Newsletter, stories in the local newspapers, announcements on local 
radio stations, and items in the weekly church bulletin. 

2. Interpret and report Branch news of any interest to the general public 
through the press, radio, and television, and maintain a positive image of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen. 

3. Serve as a liaison between Branch and Diocesan news services, send stories 
to the Diocesan Secretary of Promotion for use in the North Carolina Churchman, 
or for distribution throughout the secular media in the Diocese. (The Churchman 
deadline is a month in advance of publication.) 

4. Keep a record. A good Press Book for your Branch should include clippings 
of ECW stories which are printed, plus a list of deadlines and requirements for 
the guidance of your successor. Keep sample scripts of radio and television shows 
concerning Churchwomen. 

Please call on your Diocesan Secretary of Promotion for any help or ideas, 
as often as you'd like to do so. 

ALTAR WORK & SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. John L. Wooten, Jr., Chairman 
2920 Century Square, Winston-Salem 27106 

Altar Work is a rewarding and meaningful service in all its phases. Anything 
we do in God's service should be done with love to the very best of our ability. 

In the individual branches throughout the Diocese, the Atlar Guild Chairman 
is not always an officer of the ECW. In fact, there may not even be a specific per- 
son to whom these responsibilities would be delegated. In such cases, I would 
appreciate those having access to this handbook assuring that the proper person, 
Rector or Altar Guild Chairman, be given this information, so they may avail 
themselves of the services of this office. 

57 



These services are twofold during this particular term of office: 
First: SERVICES TO GUILDS 
This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for 
various Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Speakers to encourage more ladies to participate in the activities of the 
Guild, and those in the Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the tradi- 
tional housekeeping duties. 

Secondly: SERVICES TO PARISHES, PRIESTS, GUILDS AND ECWS 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Providing each newly established Mission with a set of linens. We maintain 
a supply of cloth and have ladies who help with the sewing to provide these 
items to fit the individual needs. 

2. Circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission 
where there is a need. These items are available for a period of one year, 
after which they are returned to the home Parish if they wish, or recirculated. 
There is need for constant re-evaluation of our needs and the needs of 
others to keep this function at its best. I have a list of items available at 
all times, and would appreciate Parishes making use of this service in both 
regards. 

3. Speakers to any interested groups on various subjects such as: Utilizing the 
old items; to make new items at reduced costs; designing vestments and para- 
ments to compliment your Parish; economy and simplicity; multi-purpose 
vestments and paraments; banner design and use, etc. 

4. Conducting workshops to provide general sewing skills suitable to Altar 
needlework, or specific help on a specific needlework undertaking. There is 
always a need for a skillful needlewoman or two in every Parish. 

5. Designing original personal vestments for Priests, banners or vestments and 
paraments for Parishes. 

6. Providing any Mission, institution, college, chaplaincy, etc, with any item 
necessary for Worship or Service. 

7. Printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs, as well as needle- 
work instruction books, and samples of materials and trims on loan. 

8. Quantities of materials and trim for use in making paraments or vestments 
for Missions or institutions. 

9. Workmanship and design for stoles given by the ECW to each Senior Semi- 
narian at his Ordination. 

10. Providing each year from a discretionary fund items needed by an institu- 
tion for which there may be no funds (such as new hangings at Vade 
Mecum). This is on the basis of need, and by specific request. 

11. There is a set of six banners complete with hanging and carrying poles 
available on request from Diocesan House through the Rev. William H. 
Hethcock, Director of Program. These are 3' x 5', brightly colored, and bear 
the messages of Joy, Peace, Glory, Celebrate, Love and Faith. These are 
wonderful at Youth Services and gatherings, and add much life and color to 
any occasion.

DIOCESAN MATERIAL AID 

Mrs. Norman A. Sippell, Chairman 

500 Brinn Drive, Sanford 27330 

The Presiding Bishop's Fund gives aid anywhere in the World where needed. 

Effort in each branch should be made to provide: 

Clothing for the NEEDY — especially blankets 
Medicine for the SICK 
Food for the HUNGRY 

Special branch projects should be encouraged and promoted to raise money 
for this urgent and worthwhile Fund. 

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. E. H. Dudley, Director 
3638 Park Road, Charlotte 28209 

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF CPC 

(From the RESOLUTION — addressed to the Presiding Bishop by the Execu- 
tive Board of the Church Periodical Club, because of the drastic cut in CPC Ad- 
ministrative appropriations.) 

"The Church Periodical Club since 1888 has been steadily increasing its vital 
service of providing free books, periodical and other printed and allied materials 
not otherwise obtainable to libraries, hospitals, institutions of learning, semi- 
narians, chaplains, missionary appointees and other church workers. 

The Church Periodical Club is the only orgainzation in the Episcopal Church 
dedicated solely to providing material of this nature and is, presently, the only 
organization equipped to do this work." 

In our Diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed 
by a diocesan Director of CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in the branches. 

Suggested Procedure for CPC Secretaries 

1. Know and understand the work of CPC. Study the following basic plans 
and expand them to effectively promote CPC in your own branch. Please share 
your new ideas with other branches, through your CPC Director. 

2. Be sure your ECW include CPC in their annual budget. 

3. Review records and material with previous CPC Secretary. 

4. Discuss with your Clergyman all the possibilities for your yearly program, 
including your initial activity, "CPC Sunday" (generally the first Sunday in Octo- 
ber), and ask for his approval and support. 

Note: It is customary to place CPC Folders and Offering Envelopes in the 
pews on CPC Sunday, and have the Clergy use the CPC Prayer. 

5. Ask your ECW President for the opportunity to present, during the year, 
a special CPC program to your branch. Develop through your ECW Executive 
Board. 

60 



6. It will prove helpful if the CPC Secretary will ask someone in each Chap- 
ter to keep her group informed monthly on the activities of CPC. 

7. Keep constantly abreast of all CPC communications and news. Post sig- 
nificant items on your bulletin boards and keep CPC material available in your 
tract racks. If you don't have the "CPC Angel" cartoon series, request them of 
your CPC Director. 

8. Encourage all lay members of your branch to subscribe to The Episcopalian 
and The Living Church. 

9. Promote gifts to The National Books Fund. Send for the following sup- 
porting materials and use them enthusiastically to publicize the important work of 
CPC* 

a) Coin Cards. 

b) Revised text on CPC Sunday folders and offering envelopes. 

c) Instruction sheet. 

10. When your branch or Churchwomen send a check to The National Books 
Fund as a memorial or as a gift to a seminarian, etc., the CPC Secretary should 
so inform the recipient of the memorial or gift. 

Note: SEND ALL CONTRIBUTIONS to the Diocesan Director of CPC. 
Do not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. All contributions should be 
remitted to the Director by check, enclosing a memo showing the source, 
so proper credit can be given. 

We do not intend to curtail our CPC services and we are hopeful we can 
fulfill all requests from Bishops and Clergy as most of them are keenly aware 
of the importance of the printed word to the Church's mission. 

"Although it takes many centuries to create a great culture and civilization, 
it can be lost in three generations if its literature is neglected or abused." 



*These and other support materials are available at a very nominal cost 
from Church Periodical Club, 815 Second Avenue, New York, N. Y. 
10017. (Remember that the New York office is closed during the month of 
August.)

PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help ; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtaiD ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all peoples everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 
with Thy children in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 



Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and tht 
glory of Thy Son, jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 



tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OP 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eighty -seventh Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



HOLY TRINITY CHURCH 

Greensboro, North Carolina 
May 5, 6, 1970 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1970 



"God of grace and God of glory 
On Thy people pour thy poiver . . . 
Grant us ivisdom, grant us courage 
For the facing of this hour. 

Set our feet in lofty places 
Gird our lives that they may be 
Armored ivith all Christ-like graces 
In the fight to set men free. 
Grant us ivisdom, grant us courage 
That ive fail not man nor thee." 

We have just sung this prayer together. It has been with me almost con- 
stantly through the past three years and especially during the past year, which has 
been tumultuous internationally, politically, educationally, racially, morally and 
for the very fabric of our civilization. In times of tumult and confusion, none 
of our lives are left personally untouched. We would not have it otherwise be- 
cause it would indicate that we were insensitive to and outside the perplexities of 
life's stream. An ivory tower must be a lonely place! Yet, as in times of de- 
clared war, this tumult galvanizes people's spirits, and all attitudes of life are 
accentuated. There is more violence and vituperation, but there is more effort 
towards reconciliation and soul searching for the deepest meanings of dignity 
and love. There is physical and mental suffering beyond our comprehension- 
hunger, homelessness, wounds and sickness, but there is also boundless compas- 
sion and a restless yearning to heal and give refuge, both physically and spirit- 
ually. How have we, as Churchwomen in North Carolina, responded to the world 
around us during this past year? 

In your delegates' envelopes are the printed reports from which you can ob- 
tain a picture of the Diocesan program; that is to say the program financed by 
the Diocesan Churchwomen's Budget and implemented through the diocesan offi- 
cers. A great deal of time and thought has been put into these summaries. Please 
read them and make sure that your Branch President, if she is not here, is given 
them and that your branch officers are given copies of the report which concerns 
them. In Churches where you have a united parish program, it might be of in- 
terest to have these posted or circulated among relevant interest groups, in order 
that a true picture of our joint efforts may be known. 

This year I sent to each branch a request for information on projects which 
would not be reflected in the Diocesan Churchwoman's Budget, for especially in- 
teresting study experiences and for some evaluation of Spring Planning Days.. I 
asked for these because this report is the only means by which one group can 
hear what others are doing. We may in this way share inspiration. Whether a 
group calls itself officially Episcopal Churchwomen or not, is sometimes of little 
importance, but I would make a strong appeal to those branches who disassociate 
from the Diocesan structure to think positively and openly before they change. 
In some cases changes have been made to a strong program, but in a few instances 
there has been total disbanding without that all important "Something of Value" 
to take its place. This can lead to frustration, perplexity and lack of direction. 
Very few Churches in the Diocese — maybe four — have changed radically, and 
several have returned to the Episcopal Churchwomen's structure. One Church 
which has no official Churchwomen, contributed substantially to our budget, was 
represented well at our Vade Mecum Conference, is here today and was hostess 

12 



Church for the convocation Spring Planning Day. My strongest plea to those 
considering change is to be charitable. Although a Churchwomen's branch may 
not fit into your scheme, it most assuredly does into other situations. There is no 
"Right" or "Wrong" about this, but there is wrong when a superior aggressive 
attitude tramples on the deep convictions of a no less dedicated minority. 

The reports which came back to me exceeded all my expectations and reading 
them is thrilling. They came from branches with as few as 8 or 9 to as many as 
450. There is no sense in saying "But at St. Polycarp's we are different". Every 
single Church or Chapel is different and subsequently their mission is different. 
To give a comprehensive list would be impossible, so I have chosen a few 
examples of ways in which Churchwomen are trying to help meet the needs 
around them. 

Responding to the difficulties of the National Church in financing overseas 
missions, there has been an increase in local branch giving to specific missionaries 
or causes in addition to our budget. These include Rachel Wolff in Nepal, the 
Rev. Mark Boesser in Alaska, Chaplain James Harvey Cook for use at a lepro- 
sarium and orphanage in Viet Nam, contributions to the Mary Wood McKenzie 
Kroll Scholarship Fund for use in Liberia, help for Sister Anne Marie's work in 
Haiti, help for the U.S.O. in Viet Nam, contributions towards a school bus in 
India and continued support of the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. 
Help was also sent for victims of Hurricane Camille on the Gulf Coast. 

Help in money, but perhaps more importantly in concern and time, to alle- 
viate local problems run the gamut from kindergartens, wholly financed and 
mainly staffed by Churchwomen: day care centers operated along similar lines; 
breakfast clubs where local children are fed before going to school: places for 
children to play between finishing school and the time their parents return home; 
places and supervision for students to do their homework in quiet clean sur- 
roundings: tutorial volunteers, both in schools and at churches or in homes for 
slower learners; schools for the mentally retarded: co-operation with government 
and other agencies on fair housing and employment opportunities and better 
schools: taking one hot meal per day to elderly people who would otherwise no 
longer be able to maintain their own homes: providing transportation for the 
elderly and poor to keep necessary appointments: many instances of continuing 
visiting of "forgotten" residents in rest homes — and I could go on and on. This 
does not touch support of the local parish budget, altar furnishing, landscaping, 
beautifying the sanctuary with stained glass windows, kneelers and wedding 
cushions, and the many other traditional channels through which Churchwomen 
express their devotion. 

Behind this is serious study, sometimes of comparatively new books, but often 
of the Bible. Many branches this year have been studying the Parables, several 
have studied the women of the Bible and a number the synoptic gospels and the 
Gospel of St. John. "Man's Need and God's Action" by Rueul Howe, "Fear, Love 
and Worship" by Fitzsimmons Allison, "The Cup of Trembling" by Elizabeth 
Berryhill and "The Magnificent Defeat" by Frederick Bauchner were amongst the 
most frequently recommended books for group study. 

Generally summarized, the underlying theme is "Being a Christian in Today's 
Changing World." 

My gratitude for the experience of the past three years is inexpressible. I 
said to Vertie Jackson about four years ago "But you must feel so alone". She 
reassured me that this was not so. Wherever I have turned I have found en- 
couragement and friendship. The Bishops have never seemed too busy. The Di- 
rector of Program, the Rev. Bill Hethcock, has been analytically and constructively 
helpful. The Board, my clergy friends and all of you have been responsive and 

13 



enthusiastic. My husband and family have been infinitely patient when my mind 
was miles away and my hands inefficiently cooking dinner — or when I was in a 
panic because the right phrase was eluding me. Through all this I have come to 
know the reality of: 

"Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, 
Christ in hearts of all that love me, 
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger". 

Margaret K. Motsinger 
President 
6 May, 1970 



PRESIDENT'S ACCEPTANCE 

There is much work to be done. People today need love, understanding, and 
help just as they always have through the ages. There are now more people, 
problems seem more complicated, help can be given in more different ways. We 
are now more aware of our mission in the church as service to mankind next 
door, across town, in large cities as well as in far off countries as never before. 
We now know that as we serve our Lord today, not only our money serves but 
our very lives must become changed and involved as we give our help to people 
in need. We do these things because we believe in God and in the teachings of 
Jesus Christ. 

In order to get work done there has to be organization. Organization has to 
have structure. There has to be a clear cut purpose. The Episcopal Churchwomen 
of the Diocese of North Carolina is an organization with a structure that works 
well to help us be strong channels of God's grace, and instruments of His will 
in the mission of this church, in this Diocese and in the world. 

I look forward to working with you, sharing with people, both far and near, 
this light and life which is ours in Christ Jesus. 

June B. Long

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Moore, members of the clergy, Mrs. Motsinger, and 
women of the church. 

This has been such an interesting meeting that it is a special pleasure for 
me to have the opportunity to thank the women of the church of Holy Trinity for 
making this convention possible. 

When you come to a churchwomen's convention you expect the meeting to 
run smoothly, and to have interesting speakers; but it is a real thrill to come to a 
meeting where the excellence of detail is displayed so beautifully from start to 
finish; from the beautiful altar flowers to the pansies on the pink cloths; the 
meals as delicious as you would expect to find at a small private dinner party; 
to the warmth of hospitality expressed everywhere. 

Our thanks to Mrs. John S. Lucas, her co-chairmen, Mrs. Colcock Brown and 
Mrs Thomas I. Stcrrs and their committees. Also to the women of the other 
Episcopal churches in Greensboro who helped with the refreshments. 

In closing, I want to say from the women of the church of Galloway Memorial 
Chapel in Elkin to the women of the church of Holy Trinity, you will always have 
a special place in our hearts for your graciousness to us and to our Margaret 
Motsinger. Thank you. 

Mrs. Hubert Parker, Chairman 
Mrs. Edward Mulvey 
Mrs. Thomas Roth, Jr.

SYDNEY H. SHAW 

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT 

ROCKY MOUNT, N. C. 

Member: American Institute of Accountants and 
N. C. Association of Certified Public Accountants 



Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of The Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1969, and the related statement 
of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examination was 
made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly 
included such tests of the accounting records and other proceudres as were deemed 
appropriate in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1969, and the related 
statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present fairly the 
recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended December 31, 1969, 
and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with generally accepted 
accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

Certified Public Accountant

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev. Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

Episcopal Churchwomen is an organization within the Church providing 
additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and service. 
It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the Church; 
to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and to 
pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 62. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 65. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known 
as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 
composed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should 
be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 
Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. Gordon Williams 
103 Liberty Lane, Greensboro 27410 

In October, 1969, 175 women attended five Convocation Quiet Days. This was 
a drop in attendance over the year before. Next year we plan to have more than 
five Quiet Days and have them more centrally located in the hope that more of 
our churchwomen will attend. The date for the Diocesan Quiet Days will be 
moved up to the first Wednesday in Advent, December 2, 1970. We hope more 
will want to come celebrate together the Coming of the Christ Child once again 
into our much too busy lives. Surely we can give one morning of quiet and medita- 
tion to pray together at the beginning of the Christmas season. Details about 
leaders and hostess parishes will be sent to you in late August. 

We will have a Lenten Retreat next spring beginning with supper at 6:00 P.M. 
on Tuesday, March 30, 1971. Sixteen women attended the Spring Retreat in 1970, 
under the leadership of Bishop Fraser. It was a stimulating and meaningful two 
days of quiet and fellowship. We hope more of you will take part in the wonder- 
ful experience of a Retreat next spring. The leader will be announced in my 
August letter. 

Following is a list of reading material. Please read the suggestions carefully 
and choose the one best suited to your group. If I can be of any help to you, please 
write to me. I would also appreciate suggestions from you.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Rd., Durham 27707 



In a final message to the Secretaries of Christian Education last year June 
Long, Acting Diocesan Secretary, proposed that the programs of the branches 
should be directed toward studies of areas in which Christian efforts are needed 
to deal with modern conditions. She quoted the Committee on the State of the 
Church of the Diocese of North Carolina as saying, "Since we live in a day of 
rapid change, our church must have a theologically-sound purpose to deal with 
modern conditions." 

A theologically-sound purpose should affirm, in these critical times, that our 
church exists in order that we may more fully love our neighbor, be he rich or 
poor, white or black, young or old. Thus the church needs to deal more adequately 
with the following issues: 1) Race relations; 2) training for leadership in the 
local church and on the diocesan level; 3) supporting youth participation in the 
church and enabling them to become part of our decision-making bodies; and 
4) facing the trust crises which have arisen among the parishes, clergy, bishops 
and in the national church. Our Bishop has warned us urgently that "every king- 
dom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against 
a house falleth — Blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it." 

The study programs in our branches should be the sound bases for Christian 
thought and action. The E.C.W. exists to help with the mission of the church and 
we therefore must study to understand that mission. Let us be innovative in our 
study programs. Perhaps the best way to begin is to ask yourself: what kind of 
women are in my branch and what are they interested in today? Try to offer 
something to each woman; do not feel bound to some rigid theme if you see that 
it lacks interest for some of your women, but interpret the theme in a fresh way 
for the disinterested. Some branches find it brings them together to study one 
selected book or problem; others may wish to critically examine many books or 
issues. Try to use the talents and wisdom of your own members. For example, 
if you are studying the man Jesus, try to include in your program someone who 
teaches little children: ask her to do a program on how she teaches the life of 
Jesus, what the responses of the children are, etc. One might also ask an his- 
torian to talk about the historical Jesus; or a writer to talk about the literary 
Jesus, or a politician to talk about the impact or lack of impact of Jesus' life in 
practical, politics. A central theme need not be binding upon your educational 
program, but it may help as a departure point.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. James E. Davis, Secretary 
7 Beverly Drive, Durham 27707 

Christian Social Relations is our daily Christian commitment of love to our 
brother and his need — and how we meet this need in our personal Christian lives, 
in our parish, in our community and in the whole world. 

Today we find ourselves in the midst of war, of racial strife, of the rising use 
of drugs, of the unmet needs of the poor, the sick, the elderly. 

Through our faith in Christ we can overcome this darkness in the world with 
Christian stewardship and joy by dedicating our lives to Christian service, Chris- 
tian love, and Christian witness to our brother's need. 

Bless our church, O Lord, in all its activities. Renew its vitality, 
strengthen its faith in Christ. Write deep in our hearts that we 
are Thy witnesses in the world to love our neighbors as ourselves. 
Fill our lives with the single motive of service, and use us, Lord, 
for Thine own purposes, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

I. Listed below are some suggestions for service to learn about becoming involved 
in some of the crucial needs in your community.

grams on Drug Prevention, Rehabilitation Centers, and other current pro- 
grams requiring volunteers. 

8. Look into unmet low income housing needs and into the need for licensed 
day care and kindergarten programs for children from low income fam- 
ilies. 

9. See what needs to be done to assist with programs for the Elderly. 

10. Consider forming a council of Christian Social Relations Chairmen from

MISSIONS 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Secretary 
P. O. Box 637, Roxboro 27573 



The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the 
world-wide mission of the Church, remembering especially the missionaries who 
have gone out from the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. The prayer manual 
"Response" is designed for use as a devotional guide in praying for mission, 
including Bible readings, commentary, and information from each area remem- 
bered in the daily intercessions. Order from Forward Movement Publications, 412 
Sycamore St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. $1.50 per year. 

2. The 1970-71 interdenominational mission study themes are "How the 
Word Gets Around" and "Latin America: How Many Worlds," Resources are 
available from Friendship Press, 475 Riverside Drive, New York 10027. 

3. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 
50% outside. Give to missions through the Diocesan pledge so that the church- 
women can accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given 
area. 

4. Remember the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina, especially 
those assigned to your convocation. Pray for them by name and write to them 
periodically, giving news of the diocese. 

5. Participate in the Christmas gift for the missionaries affiliated with the 
diocese. The total money collected is divided equally among them. Please see 
that the check is made payable to Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Secretary (address 
above) and sent to her by November 20th. 

6. Epiphany Corporate Communion offerings are for the support of Jocelyn 
Gordon in India. Branches not having a Corporate Communion are urged to make 
a contribution. Send the checks to Mrs. Garland McPherson, Treasurer. 

7. Suggestions for special projects will be sent upon request. 

8. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. 
Christian Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Diocesan Material Aid, Church 
Periodical Club, College Work, and Missions are inseparable in that each offers 
many opportunities for mission and ministry to people. Every churchwoman can 
participate.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Walter W. Burbank, Treasurer 
545 Winfield Blvd., S.E., Concord 28025 

The report of the United Thank Offering is one of dollars and cents, but 
another very real meaning of the offering lies in the grateful spirit which moti- 
vates the thousands of individuals to contribute. Because of this spirit, prayers, 
offerings and grateful service have been given. So, there are two sides to the 
United Thank Offering; one is the very personal response of each person when 
she offers up a prayer of thanskgiving and places a coin in her blue box; and the 
other is the aggregate result of a very large sum of money which goes forth into 
the world to do the Lord's work and spread his kingdom. Over half of the mis- 
sionary work of the whole episcopal church is made possible by the United Thank 
Offering. It is a way of sharing God's blessings wherever there is a need — from 
a child day care center in Panama, a clinic in Korea, or a small church and 
community center in the Cuban section of Miami, Florida. This is the result of our 
"united" thanks, but it starts with each individual's response to the presence of 
God in her own daily life. 

In order to meet the most urgent demands and needs in our world, the offering 
is no longer accumulated over a three-year period but allocated on a yearly basis. 
This new procedure was voted by the 1967 Triennial Meeting to better answer 
the demands of change and crisis in today's world. 

The United Thank Offering from September 1, 1968, to September 1, 1969, 
totaled $1,3+4,323.96. Four grants made in 1967 were returned because the projects 
were unable to start. These grants amounted to $74,600.00. This added to the offer- 
ing made a total of $1,41S,923.96, which was allocated by the Committee for Women 
in September of 1969. Forty-nine grants were funded, and are listed in the pamph- 
let ''Grants 1969". I hope you will read and study it. The United Thank Offering 
continues to finance extra-budgetary projects that have no other source of funds. 
Over the years it has affected the lives of thousands of people and hundreds of 
communities 

Our Diocese of North Carolina contributed in a very generous way in 1969. 
The Spring Ingathering was $13,792.84; the Fall Ingathering $13,047.86; the 
collection at Annual Meeting $15513 — giving a total of $26,995.83. 

The third, and last of the series of filmstrips, titled This Thy Brother has 
been mailed into each convocation for use in programs. The first two filmstrips — 
This Channel of Love and This, Thy Child — are still available, and all three 
are excellent aids in interpreting the offering. 

A new pamphlet Giving Thanks Through Giving was sent to each U.T.O. 
branch treasurer. It gives a thumbnail sketch of each grant made in 1967 and '68, 
and is most helpful and interesting. Additional ones are available from Seabury 
Book Store free of charge. 

In these days of uncertaing and concern in the world, it is our hope that our 
sense of gratefulness for the presence of God in our lives will be a certainty, and 
our response of prayers and offerings will go out into the world and accomplish 
things that we can never do ourselves. If we continue to do this, the United Thank 
Offering will continue to work miracles and touch lives all over the world.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND COLLEGE 

WORK 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Road, Durham 27707 

In the new landscape which is defined as the American campus today, we 
must re-define college work and designate it to be the understanding and devotion 
we give wherever we encounter th academic community. Dr. Daisuk Kitagawa 
once said that the Church on the campus takes a form of the Church Scattered and 
that "such communities will not be exclusively Christian, and in them Christians 
will be walking with strange fellow-travelers, and by so doing Christians will be 
able to let the light of the Gospel shine among people of different or no faith." 
The secretaries of Christian Ministries and College Work may now find their 
jobs in the branches more challenging than ever, as they seek to interpret what is 
happening on the campus to the Churchwomen, and to reach out in various forms 
of help to the young people involved. 

The postponed Conference on Parent and Child in the College Crisis will 
take place September 14 and 15, 1970, at Quail Roost Conference Center, and 
papers coming out of this conference will be sent to the secretaries so that they 
may be incorporated into a program during the year. Added to this report is a 
list of suggested readings on which the college work chairman can base a program 
or give to the members of her branch for special reading. 

Make your office as secretary of college work a vital one in your church. 
Consult with the chairman of devotions and ask her to include the beautiful prayer 
for "those who teach and those who learn" at some of your meetings. Pass out 
a list of foreign college students in your area and ask your members to invite 
them into their homes. Keep in touch with your own children already in college 
and arrange a meeting for those seniors about to begin college careers. One branch 
had a Senior Night on which they invited college chaplains in the neighboring 
colleges to meet their future students. If you are in a college area, please get in 
touch with your chaplain and offer your help. The chaplains are gracious and 
eager to tell about their work to your branch meetings. They can tell us "where 
the action is" and what that action should be. You might encourage interest in 
college work in your church by a special bulletin board display. You may write 
your diocesan officer for material for such an exhibit. 

Christian Ministries is now a field as wide as the array of human needs. 
As Branch Chairman, you will want to read some of the material describing the 
possibilities for a lay, ordained and special ministry and these are available to 
you by writing the diocesan officer. A special attempt should be made to interest 
women who now find time for careers to take special courses to prepare them 
for a social and lay ministry. The efforts at continuing education in our diocese 
are manifold and include special interests of our own clergy. You can ask your 
rector to help you build up a file on the questions of your parish concerning careers 
related to Christian services; then appropriate material can be sent to them about 
training possibilties. 

There are three things to remember in fulfilling your office competently: write 
for material and suggesitons if you need them; read available resources; touch 
the lives of real people.

PROMOTION 

Mrs. Porter Crisp, Secretary 
Picadilly Circle, Greensboro 27410 

During the past year your Diocesan Secretary of Promotion has written 
stories every month about the Episcopal Churchwomen, for publication in the 
North Carolina Churchman; has covered Annual Meeting and Diocesan Board 
meetings at the Terraces in Southern Pines, and reported important activities for 
the Churchman; has sent stories to local newspapers throughout the Diocese on 
Churchwomen's activities; provided special coverage for Spring Planning Days 
by sending stories to local newspapers on convocation chairmen, board members, 
and host churches and their ECW leaders who took part in the Planning Days; 
and maintained liaison with promotion chairmen throughout the Diocese in order 
to help them with their work. She has also served as a member of the Department 
of Stewardship and Communication for the Diocese. 

The following suggestions are offered as guidance for Secretaries of Promo- 
tion in the Branches: 

1. Keep members of your own Branch informed. This may be done through a 
monthly ECW Newsletter, stories in the local newspapers, announcements on local 
radio stations, and items in the weekly church bulletin. 

2. Interpret and report Branch news of any interest to the general public 
through the press, radio, and television, and maintain a positive image of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen. 

3. Serve as a liaison between Branch and Diocesan news services, send stories 
to the Diocesan Secretary of Promotion for use in the North Carolina Churchman, 
or for distribution throughout the secular media in the Diocese. (The Churchman 
deadline is a month in advance of publication.) 

4. Keep a record. A good Press Book for your Branch should include clippings 
of ECW stories which are printed, plus a list of deadlines and requirements for 
the guidance of your successor. Keep sample scripts of radio and television shows 
concerning Churchwomen. 

Please call on your Diocesan Secretary of Promotion for any help or ideas, 
as often as you'd like to do so.

ALTAR WORK & SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. John L. Wooten, Jr., Chairman 

2920 Century Square, Winston-Salem 27106 

Altar Work is a rewarding and meaningful service in all its phases. Anything 
we do in God's service should be done with love to the very best of our ability. 

In the individual branches throughout the Diocese, the Atlar Guild Chairman 
is not always an officer of the ECW. In fact, there may not even be a specific per- 
son to whom these responsibilities would be delegated. In such cases, I would 
appreciate those having access to this handbook assuring that the proper person, 
Rector or Altar Guild Chairman, be given this information, so they may avail 
themselves of the services of this office. Since every member of an altar guild is 
interested in information pertaining to her work, perhaps posting correspondence 
on a bulletin board in the Sacristy would be helpful. 

These services are twofold during this particular term of office: 

First: SERVICES TO GUILDS 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for 
various Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Speakers to encourage more ladies to participate in the activities of the 
Guild, and those in the Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the tradi- 
tional housekeeping duties. 

Secondly: SERVICES TO PARISHES, PRIESTS, GUILDS AND ECWS 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Providing each newly established Mission with a set of linens. We maintain 
a supply of cloth and have ladies who help with the sewing to provide these 
items to fit the individual needs. 

2. Circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission 
where there is a need. These items are available for a period of one year, 
after which they are returned to the home Parish if they wish, or recirculated. 
There is need for constant re-evaluation of our needs and the needs of 
others to keep this function at its best. I have a list of items available at 
all times, and would appreciate Parishes making use of this service in both 
regards. 

3. Speakers to any interested groups on various subjects such as: Utilizing the 
old items; to make new items at reduced costs; designing vestments and para- 
ments to compliment your Parish; economy and simplicity; multi-purpose 
vestments and paraments; banner design and use, etc. 

4. Conducting workshops to provide general sewing skills suitable to Altar 
needlework, or specific help on a specific needlework undertaking. There is 
always a need for a skillful needlewoman or two in every Parish. 

5. Designing original personal vestments for Priests, banners or vestments and 
parament9 for Parishes. 

56 



6. Providing any Mission, institution, college, chaplaincy, etc , with any item 
necessary for Worship or Service. Information on Workshops are also avail- 
able on new services of the church, creative worship opportunities, etc. 

7. Printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs, as well as needle- 
work instruction books, and samples of materials and trims on loan. 

8. Quantities of materials and trim for use in making paraments or vestments 
for Missions or institutions. 

9. Workmanship and design for stoles given by the ECW to each Senior Semi- 
narian at his Ordination. 

10. Providing each year from a discretionary fund items needed by an institu- 
tion for which there may be no funds. This is on the basis of need, and by 
specific request. 

11. There is a set of six banners complete with hanging and carrying poles 
available on request through Nancy Wooten. These are 3' x 5', brightly 
colored, and bear the messages of Joy, Peace, Glory, Celebrate, Love and 
Faith. These are wonderful at Youth Services and gatherings, and add much 
life and color to any occasion. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 
For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with 
reverence, and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may 
rise with acceptance before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee 
in the care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the 
beauty of Thy House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ 
Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

Food for the HUNGRY 
Branches are urged and encouraged to promote projects to raise money for

sending her name to the Chairman of Material Aid. 

Please send your contributions to Mrs. Garland McPherson, P. O. Box 176, 
Southern Pines, North Carolina 28387. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. Carl F. Herman, Director 
219 Mistletoe Dr., Greensboro 27403 

The Church Periodical Club is the only agency in the Episcopal Church which 
devotes itself exclusively to supplying free printed material — theological, devo- 
tional, educational, recreational, and secular — to those who need it and cannot 
otherwise obtain it. Wherever the Church is at work — among our missionaries 
at home or abroad, in hospitals, mission schools, seminaries, universities, libraries 
in the Armed Forces, in institutions served by our chaplains, in the Church Army, 
in student hostels, Clergy-Lay Conference Centers and community centers — there 
you will find Church Perodical Club material. 

National Books Fund help has gone into almost all parts of the world. From 
Alaska to Texas, from California to New York, most of our states received direct 
aid for mission work in their dioceses. Overseas dioceses were recipients of grants 
ranging from a few books for teachers, preachers and scholars (too far removed 
from libraries or too poor to buy their own) to establishing new libraries or keep- 
ing others up-to-date. 

As budgets have been cut, more of those working in the Church's program turn 
to the C.P.C. for books. If we do not do this work, it will not be done. 

One bishop wrote: "We cannot afford to give the children of God anything 
but the best education." Costs continue to increase, and we must be prepared to 
meet them ! 

In our Diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed 
by a diocesan Director of CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in the branches. 

Suggested Procedures for CPC Secretaries — 

1. Know and understand the work of CPC. Expand basic plans to effectively 
promote this work in your branch and parish. 

58 



2. Include CPC in your ECW or Parish Budget. 

3. Review records and material with previous CPC Secretary. 

4. Discuss with your Clergyman the importance of CPC work and ask for his 
approval and support in your efforts to promote it. 

5. Ask your ECW President for the opportunity to present, during the year, 
a special CPC program. 

6. Keep constantly abreast of all CPC communications and news. These are 
sent to CPC Secretaries several times during the year. 

7. Promote gifts to The National Books Fund and the Seminarian Book 
Scholarships project. Suggested ways for making money for these are as follows: 

a— CPC Sunday 

b — Coin cards 

c — Budget (Churchwomen's or Parish) 

d — Sale of magazines 

e — Containers at Circle meetings 

f — Sale of candy 

g — Memorials 

h — Book Fair 

i — Bazaar 

Suggestions for other CPC activities (non-financial) : 

1. Take magazines and books to the following places: 

a. Nursing Homes. 

b. Launderettes 

c. Doctors' waiting rooms 

d. College Dorms (Students use to cut up for projects) 

e. Retarded childrens classes 

f. Day Nurseries 

g. Jail 

h. County Home 
i. Shut-ins 
j. Aging 

Note: SEND ALL CONTRIBUTIONS to the Diocesan Director of CPC. Do 
not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. All contributions should be made 
to the Director by check, enclosing a memo showing the sources, so 
that proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check for The National Books 
Fund as a memorial or as a gift to a seminarian, the CPC Secretary 
should so inform the recipient of the memorial or gift. 
Your Diocesan Director wants to help in any way she can to further this 
important work in the Church. Please call on her.

PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank thee for the 
outpourings of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some 
of the world's needs in places far and near; guide us as we face changing times 
and new frontiers; keep our hearts thankful and our vision clear as we seek to 
fulfill our vocation and ministry as members of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 
with Thy children in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 

4 



Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace establish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 



tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and Kii 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected ; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

In Memoriam 
IRENE QUINN SIPPELL 

Born: May 28, 1899, Buffalo, N. Y. 

Died: February 3, 1971, Sanford, N. C. 

Faithful communicant of St. Thomas' Church, Sanford 

She served her Lord well through her devotion to work in her 
church in the parish and in the Diocese. She was a past president of 
the Churchwomen of her branch, and was serving as Diocesan Di- 
rector of Material Aid at the time of her death. Her witness to her 
faith was an inspiration to all who knew her. 

She was a past president of the Pierian Literary Club and the 
Woman's Club in her community, and a regular visitor to nursing 
homes and shut-ins. She was beloved in her community as a friend 
and a gracious lady. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Norman, in 1964. 

Thanks be to God for His servant Irene, who gave of herself 
generously, lovingly, and willingly. May she go from strength to 
strength in the life of perfect service in His Heavenly Kingdom. 



Eighty-ninth Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



CALVARY EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

Tarboro, North Carolina 
April 27, 28, 1971 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1971 

What an unbelievable and joyful occasion this is for me to return to Calvary- 
Church for this the eighty-ninth Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen 
of the Diocese of North Carolina. There are many reasons why this is a special 
day for me and may it be a special day for all of us together. I thank the 
members of Calvary Church for making it possible. 

In making my Annual Report to you, the Episcopal Churchwomen of this 
Diocese, and thinking of the worship, the study, the actions and the gifts 
given by all of us, I think that the second verse from Second Timothy, chapter 
four, described the past year — "Be urgent in season, out of season." The season 
does not refer to time, but to us. "Be urgent in season, out of season," whether 
we feel like it or not. The New English Bible translation is, "proclaim the 
message, press it home on all occasions convenient or inconvenient." 

In the changes that have been taking place and with the discouragements 
of our time, the Churchwomen have stood strong and continued with deter- 
mination their programs in their parishes and in this diocese to be informed 
and to be the continuing strength in the life of the whole church. 

The Triennial Meeting of the Women of the Church which was held in 
Houston, Texas, in October, 1970, brought into sharp focus the changes that have 
taken place for us, the Episcopal Churchwomen. No longer do we have a Na- 
tional organization of Episcopal Churchwomen, with national leaders to give us 
in the Diocese leadership and direction. This lack of leadership was felt for 
three years. Now, after the Houston Triennial, it is a reality. In spite of the 
many changes on a national level the women of the Church voted to continue to 
meet together at the same time and place as the General Convention of the 
Church, enabling them to express their beliefs as a group through resolutions 
and gifts supporting the mission of the Church. The changes did not discourage 
women. They excited them. It was felt that this was a productive, cautious but 
progressive meeting of the women of the Church. Triennial Meeting is still a 
representative body, exerting influence through its knowledge of the Church, its- 
ability to provide financial support, and its spiritual strength. 

"Be urgent in season, out of season" whether we feel like it or not. If we 
do only what we are inclined to do, some of us would do nothing for ever and 
ever. As I have heard reports of Diocesan officers, received your reports, visited 
Branches, held workshops and talked with you, I have known that the Church- 
women of this diocese have been "urgent in season, and out of season." 

In the worship program of the Churchwomen in the Branches much dedica- 
tion, time and thought have been shown as meaningful meditations and prayers 
have brought women groups together. Quiet Day of Prayer held throughout the 
Diocese on December Second was well attended in some areas, poorly attended 
in others. The one Worship Retreat at the Terraces for the Churchwomen was 
led by Bishop Austin Pardue. Twenty-three women were present. The emphasis 
on worship and prayer needs strengthening in the Christian Community of the 
women of the church. We cannot work and be united to our fellow members ex- 
cept as we are united to Christ our Head. 

Serious attention has been given this year in the study programs of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen to the theme of Reconciliation with reference to the 
divisions and misunderstanding, hatred and secular excesses which divide us in 
the modern world. Books which have been studied in many of the Branches 

10 



touch the topics of campus unrest, psychiatric counseling, questions of Christian 
faith, changing sexual mores, drug appeal and social service. As an outgrowth 
of the Conference on the College Crises held in September, many Branches set up 
panel programs on the changing campus. Programs on the General and Diocesan 
Conventions have informed women of changes in the Church and prepared them 
to face these changes with understanding. The United Thank Offering film, "This 
Thy Brother," has been shown, helping women to understand that it is through 
this offering that our Churchwomen have had a vital part in dealing with the 
crises of our troubled world. 

Christian social action is realized in the communities in the Diocese through 
Episcopal Churchwomen's Branch programs. Women are actively involved in 
improving race relations. Through study and gifts, the program in Chapel Hill 
to prevent and combat the use of drugs that the Rev. Lex Mathews and Dr. 
Robert Senior of that community have presented, the women have given strong 
support. Tutorial programs, kindergartens, schools for retarded children, hot 
meals for the sick and elderly, visiting the lonely and serving meals for Parish 
gatherings are only a few of the diverse ways the women witness to the love 
of our Lord. Prayers, gifts, letters and cards have gone from the women to the 
missionaries in the field. 

Monetary gifts have decreased this past year — ending December thirty-first, 
1970. Gifts to programs of special interest came to $28,648.97 this past year — 
over $4,000.00 short of last year's gifts. The gifts to Thompson Orphanage dropped 
by more than $2,000.00. The United Thank Offering has decreased each of the 
last three years. However, the percentage of participation has shown an increase 
and four Convocations in 1970 showed an increase in their Fall Ingathering over 
the 1970 Spring Ingathering. In listening to reports in the Branches, I believe 
that we will see an increase in this year's gifts. Women express deep concern in 
the needs of the institutions in this Diocese and in the needs of missionary efforts 
outside the Diocese. 

The Diocesan budget of the churchwomen is always made up and adopted 
on anticipated income. Despite the fact that some large Branches have cut their 
giving, the budget has been met. It becomes increasingly hard for the finance com- 
mittee to make up a budget to present to Annual Meeting for approval and adop- 
tion with so many needs that we all want to meet and such limited funds to work 
with. I suggest that every Branch increase its pledge to the Diocesan budget so 
that we can join together to make work possible inside and outside this Diocese 
that otherwise will not be possible. Together we can do great good. In this way 
we make it possible to be at home, in our place and in all the world at the 
same time. Let us "be urgent in season and out of season." 

The structure of the Episcopal Churchwomen in the Branches is flexible, 
enabling the different interests and talents of the women to meet the special 
needs in each community while relating to the Diocesan structure and, therefore, 
serving the needs in the Diocese, nation and world at the same time. It is an 
organization, "urgent in season, out of season." 

The theme of this Annual Meeting is "Prayer First — Then Action." Let 
us through the coming year be urgent in our prayers centering our lives around 
God and Jesus Christ. With true prayer and meditations our actions will be 
urgent for His people in His world.

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Bishop Fraser, Bishop Moore, Members of the Clergy, Mrs. Long, delegates 
and visitors to the 89th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina meeting in Tarboro at Calvary Church: 

We are reminded of our beginnings by meeting here in historical Calvary 
Church, we have been inspired by the use of the Trial Liturgy at the Com- 
munion Service, and we have felt the warm hospitality for which eastern Car- 
olina is so famous. 

We share the joy this Parish feels as one of its own, June Long, returns in 
a position of leadership, and in so doing follows in the footsteps of her mother. 

We would like to express our very special thanks to Co-Chairmen Mrs. Wil- 
liam G. Clark, III and Mrs. Russell C. Harris, Jr., and their committees, and to 
Mrs. R. C. Barnhart, President of the Episcopal Churchwomen of Calvary Parish, 
for making the arrangements for a meeting that because of their efforts will 
surely be a highlight in the record of the year's activities. 

To those who participated in the program, you have made us feel that 
"PRAYER: THEN WORK" will enable us to carry out the goals we have set 
for ourselves as we further the Mission of the Church. 

Mrs. William Sigmon, Jr., 

Chairman 

Mrs. Walter Hargrove, Jr. 

Mrs. Angus McBryde

HARRISON & JUDGE 

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS 

ROCKY MOUNT, N. C. 27801 



Members: American Institute and North Carolina Association 
of Certified Public Accountants 



February 12, 1971 



Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina: 



We have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of The Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1970, and the related state- 
ment of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examina- 
tion was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and 
accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and other procedures as 
were deemed appropriate in the circumstances. 

In our opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1970, and the related 
statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present fairly 
the recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended December 31, 
1970, and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with generally 
accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the pre- 
ceding year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HARRISON & JUDGE 
By S. H. Shaw

ship, and service. It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total 
program of the Church ; to participate more fully in carrying out the

ministry."

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev- Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
18S2 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

Episcopal Churchwomen is an organization within the Church providing 
additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and service. 
It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the Church; 
to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and to 
pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of MutuaJ 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 61. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 64. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known 

as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 

composed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should 

be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 

Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. Henry M. Best, Jr., Secretary 
1718 Meadowbrook Lane, Wilson 27893 

Due to poor attendance at Convocation Quiet Days, a motion was presented 
and carried at the Executive Board meeting in Tarboro stating that the decision 
to have Quiet Days be left to individual branches (several in an area may want 
to join in observing a morning of quiet and meditation) or some Convocations 
may still desire one with the entire Convocation. Your ECW Diocesan President 
and Secretary of Devotional Life will be happy to assist in securing leaders. 

Most of us open ourselves far too little to regular times of quiet, of prayer, 
of meditation, of holy reading; they are necessary elements in any balanced 
Christian life. We must give God a chance to speak to us directly as a result of 
having done our best to provide Him with an opportunity to do just that . . . 
because we want Him to do so, and because we recognize our need for it. 

A Lenten Retreat is scheduled at the Terraces next year beginning with 
supper at 6:00 P.M. on February 22, 1972. The leader will be announced. 

With our "Services For Trial Use" being used these next few years, let us 
make ourselves aware of what other denominations are doing in this area. 
Borrow and read "The Worshipbook" from the Presbyterian Church and the 
monthly worship booklets from the Roman Catholic Church. Circulate these 
among the women along with the explanatory books that accompany our trial 
services. 

It has been suggested that some parishes may want to purchase for their 
libraries Webster's "New World Dictionary of the American Language". It gives 
a new slant to a lot of words that the older dictionary did not. 

Emphasize family prayer and Bible study as well as personal and corporate 
worship. A great help here would be the use of The Jerusalem Bible with its 
many fine footnotes and beautiful language. 

Following is a list of reading material. Please read the suggestions care- 
fully and choose those best suited to your group. If I can be of any help to 
you, please write to me. I would also appreciate suggestions from you. 

Make the book list available to the chapters for those interested in purchasing 
personal copies. 

A good source of books and they will send them on approval is:

BIBLES 

GOOD NEWS FOR MODERN MAN, American Bible Society 

A popular, well done translation of the Bible, abridged and in contemporary 
English. Easily understtood and dignified. Paper back. 

THE BIBLE READER AND INTERFAITH INTERPRETATION, Bruce Pub- 
lishing Company, 850 Third Ave., New York, N. Y. 10022 $3.95 
This is a paperback abridged edition of Bible in contemporary English, trans- 
lated by four scholars (two Protestants, one Jew, and one Roman Catholic 

41 



. . . with Roman Catholic imprimatur . . . itself a miracle of no small 
proportion!) The translation reads as prose; every page or so, there appears 
a non-technical, prose explanation of the meaning of the passage. Easily 
understood and excellent for teachers, and home use. 

THE NEW ENGLISH BIBLE, Oxford Press 

A magnificent new translation in the best, most dignified contemporary Eng- 
lish which will offend only the most inflexible fundamentalists and/or wor- 
shippers of the "Saint James" version. Much preferred to the Revised Standard 
Version. 

THE JERUSALEM BIBLE, Doubleday & Company, N. Y. 

This is an entirely new, genuinely contemporary version of the Bible, with 
excellent notes at the bottom of each page giving helpful explanation. The 
style and translation are comparable to the NEB (No. 3 above) and generally 
speaking there is little choice between the two. (The NEB does NOT have 
the explanatory notes in the J. B.) 

The type in the J. B. is small and less easily read than that in the NEB. 
The JB is based on a superlative translation by French Roman Catholics. It 
is the most expensive of the four Bibles recommended on this sheet, but it is 
worth it to serious readers of the Bible. 

The preferable strategy would be for everyone to have immediately 
available and for easy use a copy of No. 1 or No. 2 AND a copy of No. 3 
or No. 4.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. James E. Davis, Secretary 
7 Beverly Drive, Durham 27707 

Christian Social Relations is our daily Christian commitment of love to our 
brother and his need — and how we meet this need in our personal Christian lives, 
in our parish, in our community and in the whole world. 

Today we find ourselves in the midst of war, of racial strife, of the rising use 
of drugs, of the unmet needs of the poor, the sick, the elderly. 

Through our faith in Christ we can overcome this darkness in the world with 
Christian stewardship and joy by dedicating our lives to Christian service, Chris- 
tian love, and Christian witness to our brother's need. 

Bless our church, O Lord, in all its activities. Renew its vitality, 
strengthen its faith in Christ. Write deep in our hearts that we 
are Thy witnesses in the world to love our neighbors as ourselves. 
Fill our lives with the single motive of service, and use us, Lord, 
for Thine own purposes, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

I. Listed below are some suggestions for service to learn about becoming involved 
in some of the crucial needs in your community. 

1. Contact the Public Health officer of unmet Health needs in your com- 
munity. 

2. Meet with the Director of Social Services (formerly the Welfare Depart- 
ment) and discuss ways volunteers can assist in the local programs. 

3. Contact your United Fund Executive and your Community Planning Coun- 
cil for suggestions about unmet community needs. 

4. Discuss with Superintendent of Schools ways your church can assist in 
tutoring or other needed volunteer programs in your educational system. 

5. Discuss community needs with your mayor, city councilmen, county com- 
missioner, recreation director and citizens advisory committee. 

6. Find out from the Office of Economic Opportunity, United Organization 
for Community Improvement, what projects need assistance. 

7. Contact your Mental Health Association for ways to help with their pro- 
grams on Drug Prevention, Rehabilitation Centers, and other current pro- 
grams requiring volunteers. 

8. Look into unmet low income housing needs and into the need for licensed 
day care and kindergarten programs for children from low income fam- 
ilies. 

9. See what needs to be done to assist with programs for the Elderly. 

10. Consider forming a council of Christian Social Relations Chairmen from 
all interested churches to study unmet community needs and to work co- 
operatively toward solving them. 

11. Contact local Youth Council for ways to keep channels of communication 
open and strong with youth.

MISSIONS 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Secretary 
P. O. Box 813, Roxboro 27573 



The purpose of this office is to encourage churchwomen to participate in the 
world-wide mission of the Church, remembering especially the missionaries who 
have gone out from the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. The prayer manual 
"Response" is designed for use as a devotional guide in praying for mission, 
including Bible readings, commentary, and information from each area remem- 
bered in the daily intercessions. Order from Forward Movement Publications, 412 
Sycamore St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. $1.50 per year. 

2. The 1971-1972 interdenominational mission study themes are "The New 
Generation in Africa" and "New Machines and The New Humanity". The Bible 
study is "Matthew". Basic materials and other resources are available from 
Friendship Press, 475 Riverside Drive, New York 10027. Additional information 
will be sent upon request. 

3. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 
50% outside. Give to missions through the Diocesan pledge so that the church- 
women can accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given 
area. 

4. Remember the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina, especially 
those assigned to your convocation. Pray for them by name and write to them 
periodically, giving news of the diocese. 

5. Participate in the Christmas gift for the missionaries affiliated with the 
diocese. The total money collected is divided equally among them. Please see 
that the check is made payable to Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Secretary (address 
above) and sent to her by November 20th. 

6. Epiphany Corporate Communion offerings are for the support of Jocelyn 
Gordon in India. Branches not having a Corporate Communion are urged to make 
a contribution. Send the checks to Mrs. Garland McPherson, Treasurer. 

7. Suggestions for special projects will be sent upon request. 

8. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. 
Christian Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Diocesan Material Aid, Church 
Periodical Club, College Work, and Missions are inseparable in that each offers 
many opportunities for mission and ministry to people. Every churchwoman can 
participate.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Rd., Durham 27707 



In looking for directions for Christian Education programs in our branches, 
it is of help to sit down face to face with our other branch officers and ask 
ourselves: "Where are we going, what do we want to accomplish?" What better 
goal can we have than the words of the Churchwomen's Prayer for Christian 
Education which ask that "looking unto Him, we may set forward the teaching 
power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy 
Kingdom, and the glory of Thy Son?" 

News for Christian Education chairmen may be that materials may be ob- 
tained from the Program Resources Center, National Council of the Episcopal 
Church, 815 Second Avenue, New York, N. Y. 10017. Sound filmstrips and records 
produced by Seabury Press and the Executive Council are good program re- 
sources. Write for a listing of these, and visit the Resources Center to view ma- 
terials if you happen to be in New York. 

Churchwomen can initiate studies in their branches which will provide every 
woman with inspiration, information and a relativity to the problems of her world, 
if program planning begins with forethought and prayer. Analyze the interests of 
your women; take into consideration the resources of your community and what 
relationship your parish bears toward that community; bear in mind that the pro- 
gram of the church is a varied one and presents many opportunities. Plan pro- 
grams on many facets of church life. 

There are new books for study and examination. A selected bibliography fol-

Enliven your programs graphically with films and tapes. In addition to the 
National Council's film resources, go to your public library and inquire about 
their film rentals. A fine film entitled THE RAVAGED ENVIRONMENT may be 
obtained from WMAQ-TV in Chicago. It was produced by the Chicago Academy 
of Sciences, and might be shown to your entire parish preceding several weeks of 
combined study on the environmental crisis. 

Perhaps your branch has new Episcopalians among its members. Have you 
ever considered having a study program on the Diocese of North Carolina? Many 
women may be anxious to hear about Thompson Orphanage, the Penick Home, St. 
Mary's College, Kanuga, or the wonderful history of North Carolina and her 
historic churches. 

Let us nurture our roots and pass on knowledge of our church. This is a 
part of our task as we proclaim the "good news" to all the world.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Miss Sylbert Pendleton, Treasurer 

525 Wade Avenue, Raleigh 27605 

(Report prepared by Mrs. Walter Burbank, former U. T. O. Treasurer) 

The total offering of the United Thank Offering at the Triennial Meeting in 
Houston, Texas in October, 1970, amounted to $4,080, 2S1. 26. The Diocese of North 
Carolina contributed $80,275.76. This was the total offering during the three year 
period from 1967-1970. Mrs. W. J. Long, Jr. placed a certificate for this amount 
in the Golden Alms Basin at the corporate communion service, which was part 
of the opening service of the General Convention. 

Ever since the Triennial in '67 the offering has been allocated annually in- 
stead of once every three years. In this way the demands and needs of the world 
(can be met more quickly. In the year of 1970 the churchwomen in the Diocese of 
North Carolina gave $23,644.52, from 94 branches. This was $3,191.18 below the 
1969 total. The percentage of women actively taking part in the United Thank 
Offering in our diocese ranges from 50 to 75 percent in the majority of churches. 

I hope that more active -participation will be one of the goals of our church- 
•women in the coming year. In this way each of us will find the true meaning of 
the Thank Offering — an offering of thanksgiving for special blessings at special 
times. The inspiration and vision that two women had in 1886 has turned into a 
very magnificent gift to the world, and is an important part of the whole mission 
of our church. Lives are being changed and dreams are coming true because an 
individual is thankful and gives a prayer and a gift to her "blue box", in grate- 
fulness for God's blessings. 

Still, only one out of every four requests can be granted, because of lack of 
funds ! 



Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer 

BRANCH: 

1. Be thoroughly informed about the UTO and how the money is allocated. 

2. Be sure every woman in your Parish has a Blue Box. Keep U. T. O. fore- 
most in the minds of all members through leaflets, programs and announcements 
of interest. Order your Blue Boxes and envelopes from the Seabury Book Store, 
815 Second Ave., New York, N. Y. 10017. 

3. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, St. 
Luke's Day, and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate Service of 
Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service need not be held 
on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering at a regular Sunday 
Service in order that more people may become aware of it. 

4. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingath- 
ering can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participation, 
as well as the amount received. 

5. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation Sec- 
retary-Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 

53 



number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at the In- 
gathering Service. 

CONVOCATION SECRETARY-TREASURER : 

Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy tc 
DIOCESAN U. T. O. TREASURER with one check covering the total offering 
from your Convocation. 

Mail filmstrips upon request to branches in your convocation. 

DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation Chairmen with 
instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a check to 
Mr. Lindley M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, New York, 
N. Y. 10017, for the total amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in 
March, after calendar year has been closed. Send report to Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for the 
Diocese. The Convocation Secretary-Treasurers or their representatives are asked 
to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from their Convoca- 
tion for the year, which they present with the Offering. 



DIOCESAN ALMS BASIN 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their old 
pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan United 
Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the Woman's 
Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W. Roberts of St. Philip's Church, Durham. A committee was 
appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this project. This 
committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chairman, Mrs. U. T. 
Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro and The Right Rev- 
erend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Parish U. T. O. Custodians collected cherished mementos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 
who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal of 
the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that were 
donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from grate- 
ful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 

54 



at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be ob- 
tained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES and COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. Julian Brantley, Secretary 
1507 LaFayette Circle, Rocky Mount 27801 

College work today must take cognizance of the fact that young people on 
our campuses have evolved an entirely new "life style" but that it can be based 
,on the knowledge and love of God in Jesus Christ which was imparted to these, 
our children, by a loving church in their earlier years. Religion can mean different 
things to today's college student: perhaps it will be religion in the sense of stand- 
ing in awe or wonder at the natural world; language, art, iiterature and music 
may be regarded as a means to capture religious experience. In back of these 
attempts to discover themselves, the loving care of God must still underwrite 
their lives. As Christian leaders we may be called upon to direct and sensitize 
people to those aspects of nature and the world which cannot be met by scientific 
reality. 

Make your office as Secretary of College Work one which will bring together 
the talents of your young people and the love of your parish. Keep in touch with 
those who are away at college by sending them news of the church; include upon 
occasion some pamphlet or clipping illustrating the serious attempts of our Church 
to deal with problems vital to young people. Show them that the Church IS IN 
the world and working FCR the world. It has also been suggested that a Senior 
Night be held in your parish to which college chaplains may be invited. Show a 
film, have a book exhibit, ask some of your young musicians to perform for you, 
or play such a recording as the exciting new Jesus Christ Superstar. Write the 
chaplains at St. Augustine's and St. Mary's for help in planning a program on 
; the colleges which belong to our Diocese. Please, above all, make use of the col- 
lege chaplains in your area. They are willing to tell about their changing positions 
on the campus. Write your ECW officer for suggestions for programs and materials. 

Christian Ministries is now a field which offers opportunities for women as 
well as men. Emphasize this "equal opportunity" in planning your work in this 
area. Write Virginia Seminary or St. Luke's Theological School, Sewanee, for 
slides and material for programs. A special attempt should be made to interest 
women to prepare themselves for a social and lay ministry. Write Marion B. 
Bingley, Section for Experimental and Specialized Services, National Council of the 
Episcopal Church, 815 Second Avenue, New York, for pamphlets about innovative 
experimental training opportunities for church leaders.

PROMOTION 

Mrs. Porter L. Crisp, Secretary 
Piccadilly Circle, Greensboro 27410 

Essential duties of the Diocesan Promotion Secretary are: 

1. To keep churchwomen throughout the diocese informed about the programs 
and activities by articles published in the North Carolina Churchman. 

2. To promote Episcopal Churchwomen and their activities by means of news 
media. 

3. To assist branch officers in promoting their individual programs and ac- 
tivities. 

4. To serve as a member of the Executive Board of the Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina. 



During the past year, the Secretary of Promotion has attempted to keep the 
Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina informed about their activities through 
news and feature stories in the North Carolina Churchman and in the secular 
press across the diocese. This use of local news media has not only informed our 
members, but has informed the general public of the existence and activities of 
our organization. 

The Secretary has tried to assist Convocation Chairman and Branch officers 
in promoting their respective programs and activities. Additionally she has helped 
the host churches in promoting the Annual Meeting for the last two years. She 
has tried to establish a rapport with the public press which could aid the con- 
vocations and branches in securing better news coverage for their work. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization 
offering many opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective 
members. Communicating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task 
of promotional workers. In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered: 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that some 
one is responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going 
on in their organizations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/or newsletters to inform 
members about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting 
the ECW and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in 
promoting your work. 

5. Inform other women in the diocese of any activities or projects which you 
feel are outstanding by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman. 

6. Contact your diocesan secretary for any assistance she may be able to give 
you in carrying out the above suggestions. 



57 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. David Abel, Chairman 
3505 Winstead Road, Rocky Mount 27801 

Altar Work is a rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Any- 
thing done in God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and 
to the best of our ability. Different parishes have different habits and customs. 
No attempt will be made to standardize a use. The object is to increase the 
efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carrying out the wishes of the Rector. 
Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women during His earthly life. We 
pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds undertake in the care 
of their Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer 
of the ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these respon- 
sibilities would be delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access 
to this hand book assuring that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chair- 
man be given this information, so they may avail themselves of the services of 
this office. I encourage your correspondence on any help needed. 

These services are twofold: 

First: SERVICE TO GUILDS 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for 
various Services of Worship. 

3. Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and 
those in the Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the 
traditional housekeeping duties. 

Second: SERVICES TO PARISHES, PRIESTS, GUILDS AND ECW 

This office will provide assistance 

1. To newly established missions, in obtaining a set of linens. 

2. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or 
Mission where there is a need. These items are available for a period of one 
year, after which they are returned to the home Parish if they wish, or recir- 
culated. I have a list of items available. 

3. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 

4. In providing each year from a discretionary fund, items needed by an in- 
stitution for which there may be no funds. This is on the basis of need, and by 
specific request. 

ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 
For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with 

58 



reverence, and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may 
rise with acceptance before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

For use after ivork: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee 
in the care and adormment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love 
the beauty of Thy House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus 
Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. R. O. Martinelli 
710 Wimberly Drive, Greensboro 27410 

The Church Periodical Club, which works through individuals, parishes, 
dioceses, and is the only Episcopal agency devoted to supplying free the printed 
tools of learning, is one of the most effective ministries of the printed word. 
Since 1888 it has been dedicated to this service which is, presently, acting through 
a forward thrust aimed at today's new-old problems. 

The National Books Fund of C. P. C. receives requests from the most remote 
reaches of the Anglican Communion, and from as near as the next block. Askings 
range from a single Spanish prayer book for a prisoner, to provisioning an entire 
library. Large requests must be endorsed by an authority — a bishop, dean, or 
the administrator of an institution. All requests are processed and acted upon by 
an experienced committee. 

What does C. P. C. supply? All printed material — religious, educational, 
medical, technical, recreational — needed for the church's larger mission. Trans- 
lations of the prayer book, hymnal, Braille for the blind, big print for the poorly 
sighted, devotional reading for prayer groups, church school material, text books, 
reference works — for use on reservations, in ghettos, in community and campus 
centers; inspirational, recreational reading for service men, shut-ins, missionaries; 
material needed to train nurses, doctors, technicians, indigenous clergy — all are 
provided. A donation may bolster the morale of many men of good will, may 
enable an agronomist to relieve the malnutrition in a large area, a translator to 
lighten the darkness of a whole people. In Africa one book may serve 200 readers! 
A gift to the National Books Fund may make enlightened citizens of children 
otherwise doomed to illiteracy. 

The need for knowledge of accurate fact, of eternal truth is urgent. It is not 
being met. Pornography of unprecedented quantity and viciousness is being fed 
to inquiring minds abroad and at home. As Christians it is our duty to under- 
stand and to act before the results overwhelm the innocent. The printed word re- 
mains our most powerful weapon. 

The Church Periodical Club offers a Christian method of direct action that 
both respects the dignity of recipients and encourages self help. Pray for C. P. C. 
Go with the Church Periodical Club into all the world — preaching, teaching, 
healing. 

Suggested ongoing projects for parishes and dioceses: 

St. Andrew's Theological Seminary in Manila. (For the library). 

St. Agnes School, Kyoto. (For urgently needed books). 

Clergy education in Tohoku Diocese, Japan. 

Seminario Episcopal Del Caribe in Puerto Rico. (For its library). 

Information about the above projects may be obtained from your C. P. C. Di- 
rector. 

Church Periodical Club Triennial color slides, with commentary — plus taped 
addresses of Bishop Bayard, Father Heffner and Bishop Koh are also avail- 
able. 

60 



The pamphlet "Church Periodical Club" put out by the National Books Fund, 
is excellent and may be had for $3.00 a hundred plus postage. 

Note: SEND ALL CONTRIBUTIONS to the Diocesan Director of CPC. Do 
not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. All contributions should be made 
to the Director by check, enclosing a memo showing the source, so that 
proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check for The National Books Fund as 
a memorial or as a gift to a seminarian, the CPC Secretary should so inform the 
recipient of the memorial or gift. 

Your Diocesan Director wants to help in any way she can to further this 
important work in the Church. Please call on her.

Message for the Episcopal Church women's Yearbook — 1972-73 

from the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser 

Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina 

At the 1972 Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen at St. Paul's 
Church in Winston-Salem one had a feeling of modern women facing the 
world of today with strength and conviction. Not only is the program of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen evolving into one that is highly relevant, but 
the women are also putting their time, their talents and their money in 
the same direction. It is possible that the renewal of the Church in this 
diocese could begin with the leadership of the Episcopal Churchwomen. 
If one looks carefully at the leadership that these women are taking out- 
side of their own organization — on vestries, the Diocesan Council, the Dio- 
cesan Convention, and institutions of the diocese — one can find concrete 
evidence of this "new" direction. I am proud of this leadership. It deserves 
the support of every member of the diocese.

PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, 
we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved 
Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy 
blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in 
prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be 
baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church in all 
the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our 
prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge 
of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Send us, O God , as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives without love, 
to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have blessed, to 
the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have lifted, to the 
bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars of our hearts, 
that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in our souls, that 
others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, our wills keen, our 
hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's sake. Amen. 



UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O God, who art the hope of all peoples everywhere, we thank thee for the out- 
pourings of love and generosity which have enabled us to respond to some of the 
world's needs in places far and near; guide us as we face changing times and new 
frontiers; keep our hearts thankful and our vision clear as we seek to fulfill our 
vocation and ministry as members of the body of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord . Amen . 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these 
gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the 
benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy chil- 
dren in all the world; for His sake whose life and death and rising to life again were 
a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour [esus Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the Life; 
grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy Church, 
to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but with 
whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper 
the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of 

Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to 

know and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation 
of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. May we 
remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless teachers, 
students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that we may 
find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church work. In 
Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World , pour out, we beseech Thee, upon 
all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know the 
hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness 
of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper 
the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to 
make the light of Thy glory shine forth in"the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of 
Thy mercy and grace establish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest 
and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. 
Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the 
Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and 
give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful 
service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, 
and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do 
all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to 
guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 



SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I present 

to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and power. 
Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt their 
hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until they are 
lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to discharge 
the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through privateprayer, Bible study, and regular attendance at the 



Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His purpose for you, and 
for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's kingdom 
in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high sense 
of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency and 
fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentleness — 
thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they daily present 
themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels of Thy grace, 
and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of, the Diocese. Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be upon 
you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and 
admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the 
blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance of 
the duties which you have laid upon them. 
O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 

Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting }ife; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for 
which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the per- 
formance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love 
in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for service, 
to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength 
of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with 
you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

In Memoriam 
ELIZABETH S. GORDON 

Born: January 24, 1884, Wilmington, N. C. 

Died: August 14, 1971, Deerfield, Asheville, N. C. 

Missionary in and around Eden 

In January, 1911, "Miss Bettie," as she was more affectionately 
known, went to work officially as parish visitor at St. Luke's Mission, 
Spray. For more than fifty years she was a faithful and devoted parish 
worker serving voluntarily in many capacities: visitor, organist, Sunday 
School teacher, and active churchwoman. 

Her interests were community wide. Beloved and respected, she was 
frequently seen on the streets talking with people in all walks of life. Her 
implicit faith in God and her wholehearted love for Him were an in- 
spiration to all who knew her. 

Thanks be to God for his faithful servant. May she go from strength 
to strength in the life of perfect service in His Heavenly Kingdom.

Ninetieth Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



ST. PAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

Winston-Salem, North Carolina 
May 2, 3, 1972 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 
Annual Meeting 1972 

Bishop Fraser, delegates and guests, welcome to this the 90th Annual Meeting of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. This is the 6th Annual Meet- 
ing of the Churchwomen to be held at St. Paul's Church in Winston-Salem. It is indeed 
fitting that we turn such a milestone as our 90th Annual Meeting in this beautiful and 
historic city and church. The present is built on the past. Here with the evidence of 
work done for our Lord around us, we are reminded that we add something to those 
before us as we continue to witness to His love. We are grateful to the members of 
St. Paul's for hosting this meeting. 

In trying to evaluate in a general way the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen 
since we last met in Calvary Church, Tarboro, the words determination, excitement 
and joy come to my mind. Churchwomen throughout the diocese have expressed a 
determination to work together to further the mission of the church. The women of 
Christ Church, Charlotte re-organized this past year. They felt that they had "lost 
touch with what is going on" and "would like to have contact and communion with 
other women." They "want to feel a real part of our church." St. Cyprian in Oxford, 
St. Ambrose in Raleigh, the Church of the Good Shepherd in Asheboro and the Church 
of the Holy Family in Chapel Hill report that they are becoming newly involved in 
their work. Many Branches have restructured their organizations. Churchwomen of 
the Church of the Messiah, Rockingham, report that with new ideas received at Spring 
Workshops "we were so enthused, we came right home, called a meeting and have 
completely re-organized our two chapters. We believe we are on the right track now." 
This is typical of many Branches. Certainly there are Branches struggling to survive 
but determined to find answers for new life in their efforts to serve. It is with sadness 
that I received a report from St. Matthew's in Hillsborough that they are becoming 
inactive. Churchwomen of St. Matthew's sent delegates with five other churches 
in the diocese to the first Annual Meeting held at Calvary Church, Tarboro in 
1882. Many Branches find that the traditional structure of officers corresponding 
to Diocesan officers serves the interest and needs of their Churchwomen best. Many 
strong Branches, large and small, new and old, continue to work with vigor, excite- 
ment and joy. There are 97 organized Branches. 

The four Spring Workshops held this year were more than well attended. Inspiration 
and ideas were given and received in a wonderful spirit of joy in His service. The 
workshops did not meet all needs of Churchwomen, especially Churchwomen of 
transient congregations. I welcome your ideas for improvement. Ten quiet Days of 
Prayer were held this year throughout the Diocese. The Diocesan Worship Retreat at 
the Terraces was a great success with twenty-eight Churchwomen present. The 
Churchwomen's Conference at Kanuga last June also was enthusiastically received 
with about forty persons taking part. 

On the Branch level much activity is reported. St. Luke's, Salisbury and Christ 
Church, Raleigh have opened small gift shops and are excited over the profits made 
which they have given to special projects in the community. The Churchwomen of 
St. Stephen's, Durham, are sponsoring their choir director and his wife as faculty 
members of the Music Camp at Holy Trinity School in Haiti this summer. Volunteers at 
St. Timothy's, Wilson, work with Crisis Center, a telephone answering service. Good 
Shepherd, Raleigh reports special help for patients at Dorothea Dix Hospital. Special 
gifts and attention are given to mental patients and the needy at Christmas time by 
many Branches. Hot meals are taken to the elderly and shut-ins throughout the year. 
Money made from Bazaars, May Fairs, Food Fairs and Attic Sales is generously given 
to support such varied programs as Christian Childrens Fund, Boys Club of America, 
Mental Health Clinics, Day Care Centers, Switchboard, Genesis House for drug re- 

12 



habilitation, Diocesan institutions, and Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation . Many gifts go 
to our missions overseas to help with seminaries, schools and food and clothing 
programs. 

Women, through 40 Branches, gave $1,082.37 to the National Church 
Periodical Club. The 1971 U.T.O. Offering was $27,097.32— an increase of 
nearly $3,500.00 over 1970. Special gifts increased more than $3,000.00 this year. A 
total of more than $53,000.00 was. given by the women through the Diocesan 
Treasurer in 1971. The Christmas gifts fund for the eight missionaries affiliated 
with the Diocese of North Carolina amounted to $1,534.00. Each missionary 
received a gift of nearly $200.00. 

During the coming year I would like to see better communication between the 
Branches and the Church women's Executive Board. All communication seems to be 
one way — from the Board to the Branch. Let us hear from you. I would like every 
Branch to invite a member of the Board as a visitor to at least one meeting a year. 
I would like the Churchwomen to have at least one page in every issue of The 
North Carolina Churchman for news and information. An important area in com- 
munication is through Convocation Executive Board Meetings. I would like to see 
improved attendance at these meetings. Convocation Chairmen are an important 
link between the Executive Board and the Branches. 

Triennial Meeting will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, October 1973. Since the 
agenda of Triennial has changed, making the approval of United Thank Offering 
grants for one year, and setting the policy and procedure of the U.T.O. Committee 
its only official business, I commend to you the change in our Constitution provid- 
ing for our United Thank Offering Treasurer to be a delegate to Triennial by virtue 
of her office. I feel that she will go to Triennial well qualified to vote on matters be- 
fore this Meeting. 

With increased participation in Diocesan and Convocation Activities, with increased 
giving, and with growing strength and new vigor apparent in many Branches, I 
feel that the Episcopal Churchwomen are about their Father's business. We rejoice 
and serve the Lord together. 

Let us move into this next year with new determination and deeper faith. Asking 
our Lord: 

To take our minds and think through them. 
To take our lips and speak through them. 
To take our hearts and set them on fire. 
Rejoice and serve the Lord! 

Mrs. W. J. Long, Jr.

REPORT OF THE COURTESY COMMITTEE 



Bishop Fraser, Members of the Clergy, Mrs. Long, delegates and visitors to the 
90th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina 
meeting in Winston-Salem at St. Paul's Church: 

It becomes increasingly evident that if the Church is to survive, it will be because 
of the work of the women as they manifest the love of Christ in the world. 

St. Paul's with its tradition, has provided the foundation to achieve this goal to- 
morrow. 

The tradition of this foundation for tomorrow can be shown not only in the physical 
plant but in the warmth and graciousness of St. Paul's leaders shared with us for 
this occasion. 

We would like to thank sincerely the Chairman, Mrs. John Winder, Co-Chairmen 
Mrs. William Koenig and Mrs. Edward Mulvey and their committees, and Mrs. Henry 
A. Brown, Jr., President of the Episcopal Churchwomen of St. Paul's for all their work 
in making the arrangements for this meeting. 

We do indeed "Rejoice and Serve The Lord." 

Mrs. Ralston Welch, Chairman 
Mrs. Maynard Newman 
Mrs. Gertha Jeffries

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS 

Branch Banking and Trust Company Building 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27602 



January 17, 1972 



Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 



We have examined the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balances of 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, as of December 31, 1971 and 
the related statement of changes in fund balances for the year then ended. Our ex- 
amination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and 
accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing 
procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. As to funds received, 
our examination was limited to recorded receipts. 

In our opinion the accompanying statement of assets, liabilities and fund 
balances and the related statement of changes in fund balances present fairly the 
financial position of Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina as of 
December 31, 1971 and the results of its operations for the year then ended, in con- 
formity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent 
with that of the preceding year. The current year's supplementary data included in 
Schedule 1 have been subjected to the same auditing procedures and, in our opinion, 
are stated fairly in all material respects when considered in conjunction with the basic 
financial statements taken as a whole. 

HOLLINGSWORTH, CLARK & JOHNSON

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female Mis- 
sionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Woman's 
Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many years the 
chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise money for 
the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council was set 
up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary only to the 
Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." This change widened 
and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to the women of the 
Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an auxiliary 
to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's Work, the 
executive body on the national level, representing all of the work of all the women 
of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back to 1881 
when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The Rt. Rev. 
Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte to form 
a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 1882 at the Diocesan Con- 
vention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches with a total membership 
of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one of twenty-six organized 
in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was adopted 
changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina." It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches be known 
as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 



Episcopal Churchwomen is an organization within the Church providing additional 
opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and service. It enables 
churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the Church; to participate 
more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and to pioneer in new and 
creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from the 
Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially through 
the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual Responsi- 
bility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellowship, 
and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the challenge 
to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative ways to deepen 
our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve Him obediently, and to 
witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 56. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 59. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known as a 
Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is com- 
posed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should be 
simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as Chapters. 
The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. Henry M. Best, Jr., Secretary 
1718 Meadowbrook Lane, Wilson 27893 

THE WORSHIP OF GOD is the first business of every parish and its organiza- 
tions, indeed our lives. God cannot speak to us unless we give Him a chance to do so; 
we must listen in order to hear Him and we cannot listen unless we are still. 

To live balanced Christian lives, we must make regular times of quiet and listening 
to God in order for God to be able to work in and through us. In doing this, I do not 
mean an introspective withdrawal from the world. It is not Christian to try to escape 
this world. I mean to find the real center of your world, thereby enabling you to live in 
this world more effectively. As Devotional Life Secretaries, I urge you, if you are not 
doing so already, to establish a personal relationship with God and you will find your- 
selves better able to perform your duties of office. Emphasize family prayer and Bible 
study as well as personal and corporate worship. 

After one year in this office, I have gathered much helpful information from ECW 
Branches concerning parish retreats, quiet days, Bible study, discussion and prayer 
groups that I want to share with you, either personally or by letter, if you will con- 
tact me concerning your needs. I feel I can pass along suggestions that have been ef- 
fective for other Branches or put you in touch with those who will be able to assist you 
in planning your particular Branch Devotional Life Programs and activities.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. Walter Elsee, Secretary 
824 S. First Street, Smithfield 27577 

Christian Social Relations is our daily Christian commitment of love to our 
brother and his need — and how we meet this need in our personal Christian lives, in 
our parish, in our community and in the whole world. 

Today we find ourselves in the midst of war, of racial strife, of the rising use of 
drugs, of the unmet needs of the poor, the sick, the elderly. 

Through our faith in Christ we can overcome this darkness in the world with 
Christian stewardship and joy by dedicating our lives to Christian service, Christian 
love, and Christian witness to our brother's need. 

Bless our church, O Lord, in all its activities. Renew its vitality, strengthen 
its faith in Christ. Write deep in our hearts that we are Thy witnesses in the 
world to love our neighbors as ourselves. Fill our lives with the single motive of 
service, and use us, Lord, for Thine own purpose, through Jesus Christ, our 
Lord. Amen. 

I. Listed below are some suggestions for service to learn about becoming in- 

volved in some of the crucial needs in your community. 

1. Contact the Public Health officer of unmet health needs in your community. 

2. Meet with the Director of Social Services (formerly the Welfare Department) 
and discuss ways volunteers can assist in the local programs. 

3. Contact your United Fund executive and your Community Planning Council 
for suggestions about unmet community needs. 

4. Discuss with Superintendent of Schools ways your church can assist in tutor- 
ing or other needed volunteer programs in your educational system. 

5. Discuss community needs with your mayor, city councilmen, county commis- 
sioner, recreation director and citizens advisory committee. 

6. Find out from the Office of Economic Opportunity, United Organization for 
Community Improvement, what projects need assistance. 

7. Contact your Mental Health Association for ways to help with their programs 
on Drug Prevention, Rehabilitation Centers, and other current programs re- 
quiring volunteers. 

8. Look into unmet low income housing needs and into the need for licensed day 
care and kindergarten programs for children from low income families. 

9. See what needs to be done to assist with programs for the elderly. 

10. Consider forming a council of Christian Social Relations chairmen from all 
interested churches to study unmet community needs and to work co-opera- 
tively toward solving them. 

11. Contact local Youth Council for ways to keep channels of communication 
open and strong with youth. 

II. Diocesan Projects: 

1. Hospital Chaplaincy (contact nearest chaplains to you to see how 
you can be of assistance). 

2. Episcopal Child Care Service (formerly Thompson Orphanage). 1130 E. 
Fourth St., Charlotte (write Mr. Robert Noble, Administrator, for information 
on how you can be of assistance).

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Edward T. Mulvey, Jr., Secretary 
3228 Pennington Lane, Winston-Salem 27106 



The purpose of this office is to encourage church women to participate in the world- 
wide mission of the Church. 

Information and suggestions to help attain this purpose follow. 

1. Pray daily for the world-wide mission of the Church. Use the prayer manual 
RESPONSE, a devotional guide, including Bible readings, commentary, and informa- 
tion from each area remembered in the daily intercessions. Order from Forward 
Movement Publications, 412 Sycamore St. , Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. $1.50 per year. 

2. The 1972-1973 ecumenical mission study themes are FAITH AND JUSTICE 
and INDIA-One Sixth of the World's People. Basic materials and other resources 
are available from Friendship Press, 475 Riverside Drive, New York 10027. 

3. A good policy is to divide the Branch budget 50% inside the parish and 50% 
outside. Give to missions through the Diocesan pledge so that the churchwomen can 
accept larger priority projects, thereby accomplishing more in a given area. Sug- 
gestions for special projects will be sent upon request. 

4. Remember especially the missionaries from the Diocese of North Carolina. 
Pray for them by name and write to them periodically. Participate in the Missionary 
Christmas Gift for both active and retired missionaries from this diocese. The total 
money collected is divided equally among them. Please see that the check is made 
payable to Mrs. E. T. Mulvey, Jr., Secretary (address above) and mailed to her by 
November 20th. 

5. By action of the 1972 Annual Meeting the 1973 Epiphany Offering will go to 
the Reverend Beverley Tucker, missionary to Japan, who is now teaching at the 
Bishop Williams Seminary, Kyoto. Branches not having a Corporate Communion are 
urged to contribute to the offering. Send checks to Mrs. James A. Hill, Jr., Treasurer, 
3606 Corbin St., Raleigh 27609. 

6. Remember that mission begins at home and extends throughout the world. 
Christian Social Relations, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, College 
Work, and Missions are inseparable in that each offers opportunities for mission 
and ministry to people. Every churchwoman can participate.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, Secretary 
3444 Rugby Rd., Durham, N. C. 27707 

A beautiful prayer of St. Augustine might well be the hallmark of the work of a 
Christian Education Secretary as she plans her year. It is a prayer of thankfulness for 
"the gifts of faith, knowledge, and of a whole mind; for the grace of membership and 
the jov of fellowship." All these gifts are needed as we plan an education program. 

After you have looked at materials aYailable in your community, gathered ideas 
from the Spring Workshops and the bookstore exhibit at Annual Meeting, you may 
then want to select your theme. We hope you will not confine this process to "selecting 
a book," but range widely to meet the needs of your women with varieties of programs. 
A theme mav be developed in many ways, using graphics, multi-media and human 
resources. The programs throughout the year should be varied in format. We have 
work to do, problems to attack, issues to study, new ideas to explore. You may write 
the Program Resources Center, National Council of the Episcopal Church, 815 
Second Avenue, New York, N. Y. 10017, for materials on various programs of moment 
to the church. 

Your churchwomen may wish to subscribe to the Cooperative Film Library which 
has been started in Birmingham, Alabama, by the Rev. William A. Yon, formerly of 
this Diocese. His project provides a readily available library of contemporary religious 
"Impact" films at modest cost. Write him at: 521 N. 20th Street, Birmingham, 
Alabama 35203. 

There are new books for study and examination. A selected bibliography follows: 

Paul: Envoy Extraordinary , Malcolm Muggeridge. Harper and Rowe, 1972. 

Women In Church And Society: An Historical and Theological Inquiry, Georgia 
Harkness, Abingdon Press, 1972. 

Women's Liberation And The Church: The New Demand for Freedom in the 
Life of the Church, Sarah Bentlev Doelv, Association Press, New York, 1970. 

The Story Of Death, James R. Adams, Seabury Press, 1971. 

Rich Man Poor Man: Christian Ethics for Modern Man, Donald W. Schreiber, 
Jr., Cartoons bv Jim Crane, John Knox Press, Richmond, 1972. 

Wars And Rumors of Wars, Roger L. Shinn, Abingdon Press, 1972. 

Discovery In Prayer, Robert J. Hever, S. J., Paulist Press, New York, 1969. 

He Is The Stillpoini Of The Turning World. Mark Link, S. J., Argus Communi- 
cations, Chicago, 1971. 

Many women wish to study the projects of the Churchwomen and we do commend 
such studies to you: why not gather materials for your program on Genesis House, 
Tree House, Thompson Child Care Agencies, Penick Home, St. Augustine's and St. 
Mary's Colleges, and see what new methods you can employ to enlarge your knowl- 
edge of these institutions? If you are interested in a program on drugs, please write to 
Mr. Woodrow Carter, Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Avenue, New York, 
N. Y. 10017, to ask for the new pamphlet entitled Pastoral Care Of Young Drug Users And 
Their Families. A background paper for the Development Committee of the Church, 
The Role Of The Church-Today And Tomorrow, may be obtained from the Seabury 

46 



Bookstore, 815 Second Avenue, N. Y., N. Y., 10017, at a cost of $.50 each, should 
you wish to pursue a program on our church's search for its role in society at large. 

Please keep in touch with your Diocesan Christian Education Secretary. Write me 
at any time for help, for suggestions of speakers, and for new books and ideas. Let us 
make our branches aware of our concern that we be nurtured in the spirit by study, 
books, and society.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Sylbert Pendleton, Treasurer 
525 Wade Ave. No. 49, Raleigh 27605 

The world is full of God's love and thought of us. Those of us who have a Blue 
Box can respond; each day we can drop a coin in it as we offer a prayer of thanks- 
giving for the good things given so freely to us. Then, all of our small gifts are gathered 
together at diocesan level ($27,306.58 in 1971); next, the diocesan amounts are 
gathered nationally (this total is usually well over a million dollars) to be distributed by 
the United Thank Offering committee so that each of us can have a part in helping to 
spread the Gospel here and abroad. 

Let us put out extra effort this year to help the many women who have not even 
heard of our joyful way of giving learn about the United Thank Offering and what it 
does for us as well as for the people who receive it. The participation of all Episcopa- 
lians is your goal. 



PRIVILEGES OF THE UNITED THANK 
OFFERING TREASURERS: 



PARISH 

1. To be thoroughly informed about the "why" of giving the United Thank Of- 
fering way, and about the people who receive the money; to see that your program 
chairman saves at least one meeting a year for you to tell everyone about it (you may 
get filmstrips from your Convocation secretary-treasurer.) This Thy Child, This Thy 
Brother, This Channel of Love). 

2. At least six weeks before an ingathering, to order from Seabury Book Store, 
815 Second Ave., New York, N.Y. , 10017, sufficient Blue Boxes to be sure that each 
woman has one, and Blue Collection Envelopes, the most recent UTO Grant List and 
the new UTO prayer card to be given to every woman in your church. 

3. To arrange with your Rector for the Spring and Fall Ingatherings (on or 
near the Feast of the Annunciation and St. Luke's Day), to publicize them well ahead 
of time, and perhaps to persuade your Rector to preach or talk on the subject the 
Sunday before (give him a copy of the U.T.O. Prayer to use). 

4. To gather the offering and, three weeks after the Ingathering (this allows 
time for delayed participation), to send one check to cover the full amount to your 
Convocation secretary-treasurer along with a record of the number of envelopes sent 
out, the number returned , and an estimate of the number attending the Ingathering. 

CONVOCATION SECRETARY-TREASURER 

To keep accurate records of the offerings and participation records of each Branch; 
to send a copy to the Diocesan U.T.O. Treasurer, along with one check covering 
total offering, within one month of the Ingathering; and to mail filmstrips upon re- 
quest to the churches in your convocation. 



48 



DIOCESAN 

1. To be available to visit any branch, when requested, to help them learn more 
about the United Thank Offering than her letter (sent before each Ingathering) can 
tell; to attend all board meetings, conduct workshops, keep in touch with provincial 
and national representatives to acquire the needed information. 

2. To receive the Ingathering monies from the Convocations and to send one 
check to the national treasurer; to keep records of each parish; and to send an annual 
financial report to the E.C.W. Treasurer, a general report for the Annual Meeting and 
this more detailed one for the Year Book. 

3. To arrange for representatives of each Convocation to take up the offering for 
the yearly Ingathering at the Holy Communion Service at the Annual Meeting. 

4. To take care of the United Thank Offering Alms Bason and to lend it to any

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES and 
COLLEGE WORK 

Mrs. Charles Welch, Secretary 
400 Wiley Avenue, Salisbury 28177 

College work today must take cognizance of the fact that young people on our 
campuses have evolved an entirely new "life style" but that it can be based on the 
knowledge and love of God in Jesus Christ which was imparted to these, our children, 
by a loving church in their earlier years. Religion can mean different things to today's 
college student: perhaps it will be religion in the sense of standing in awe or wonder 
at the natural world; language, art, literature and music may be regarded as a means 
to capture religious experience. In back of these attempts to discover themselves, the 
loving care of God must still underwrite their lives. As Christian leaders we may be 
called upon to direct and sensitize people to those aspects of nature and the world 
which cannot be met by scientific reality. 

Make your office as Secretary of College Work one which will bring together the 
talents of your young people and the love of your parish. Keep in touch with those who 
are away at college by sending them news of the church; include upon occasion some 
pamphlet or clipping illustrating the serious attempts of our Church to deal with 
problems vital to young people. Show them that the Church IS IN the world and 
working FOR the world. It has also been suggested that a Senior Night be held in 
your parish to which college chaplains may be invited. Show a film, have a book 
exhibit, ask some of your young musicians to perform for you, or play such a recording 
as the exciting new Jesus Christ Superstar. Write the chaplains at St. Augustine's 
and St. Mary's for help in planning a program on the colleges which belong to our 
Diocese. Please, above all, make use of the college chaplains in your area. They are 
willing to tell about their changing positions on the campus. Write your ECW officer 
for suggestions for programs and materials. 

Christian Ministries is now a field which offers opportunities for women as well 
as men. Emphasize this "equal opportunity" in planning your work in this area. Write 
Virginia Seminary or St. Luke's Theological School, Sewanee, for slides and material 
for programs. A special attempt should be made to interest women to prepare them- 
selves for a social and lay ministry. Write Marion B. Bingley, Section for Experi- 
mental and Specialized Services, National Council of the Episcopal Church, 815 Second 
Avenue, New York, for pamphlets about innovative experimental training opportun- 
ities for church leaders.

diocese. This use of local news media has not only informed our members, but has 
informed the general public of the existence and activities of our organization. 

The Secretary has tried to assist Convocation Chairman and Branch officers in 
promoting their respective programs and activities. Additionally she has helped the 
host churches in promoting the Annual Meeting for the last two years. She has tried 
to establish a rapport with the public press which could aid the convocations and 
branches in securing better news coverage for their work. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina is a very vital organization of- 
fering many opportunities for spiritual growth to all its members and prospective 
members. Communicating this message is the task of all, but particularly the task of 
promotional workers. In keeping with this, the following suggestions are offered : 

1. Convocation Chairmen and Branch Presidents should be certain that some 
one is responsible for the work of informing the other members of what is going on in 
their organizations. 

2. Make effective use of your church bulletins and/ or newsletters to inform mem- 
bers about coming events and activities. 

3. Assist other branch officers with your ideas and imagination in promoting the 
ECW and in promoting their respective programs. 

4. Establish a good relationship with your local press and solicit their aid in pro- 
moting your work. 

5. Inform other women in the diocese of any activities or projects which you feel 
are outstanding by reporting them in the North Carolina Churchman . 

6. Contact your diocesan secretary for any assistance she may be able to give you 
in carrying out the above suggestions.

ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. David Abel, Chairman 
3505 Winstead Road, Rocky Mount 27801 



Altar Work is a rewarding and meaningful service in all of its phases. Anything 
done in God's service and to His Glory should be performed with love and to the best 
of our ability. Parishes have different needs and customs. No attempt will be made to 
standardize. The object is to increase the efficiency and devotion of each Guild in carry- 
ing out the wishes of the Rector. Our Lord accepted the ministry of faithful women 
during His earthly life. We pray that He accept and bless the work which our Guilds 
undertake in the care of their Sanctuaries. 

In the individual branches the Altar Guild Chairman is not always an officer of 
the ECW. In fact, there may not be a specific person to whom these responsibilities 
would be delegated. In such cases, I would appreciate those having access to this hand 
book assuring that the proper person, Rector or Altar Guild Chairman be given this 
information, so they may avail themselves of the services of this office. I encourage 
vour correspondence on any help needed. 

These sen-ices are twofold: 

First: SERVICE TO GUILDS 

This office will provide help in: 

1. Setting up procedures for Altar work. 

2. Teaching the skills necessary for maintaining a Sacristy, and preparing for 
various Services of Worship. 

3 . Specific hints and helps for the various housekeeping problems which arise. 

4. Encouraging more ladies to participate in the activities of the Guild, and those 
in the Guild to refresh their enthusiasm for their work. 

5. Suggestions for services which the Guilds may provide other than the tradi- 
tional housekeeping duties. 

Second: SERVICES TO PARISHES, PRIESTS, GUILDS AND ECW 

This office will provide assistance 

1. To newly established missions, in obtaining a set of linens. 

2. In circulating items not currently in use by one Parish to a Parish or Mission 
where there is a need. These items are available for a period of one year, after which 
they are returned to the home Parish if they wish, or recirculated. I have a list of items 
available. 

3. In obtaining printed aids such as books, catalogues for Altar needs. 



ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 

For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with 
reverence, and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may rise 
with acceptance before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Amen. 



52 



For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee in the 
care and adormment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the beauty 
of Thy House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. 
Amen.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. R. O. Martinelli, Director 
710 Wimberly Drive, Greensboro, N. C. 27410 

The Church Periodical Club is the only organization in the Episcopal Church that is 
devoted solely to providing printed materials free to people all over the world who can- 
not obtain them otherwise. Wherever the Church is at work, abroad or in the United 
States, in the urban slums, migrant camps, hospitals, schools, universities, on reser- 
vations, in the Armed Forces, in the many types of institutions served by our chaplains, 
in ecumenical undertakings, the Church Periodical Club is at work. In a world that is 
still largely illiterate, education is as important as food and clothing. But education is 
virtually impossible without its most important tools — books. 

Do you know what a book can do? The United Thank Offering Committee knows; 
therefore, they gave C.P.C. a grant which made available the folder, "Do You Know 
What a Book Can Do?" The folder tells the story of this unique ministry of the print- 
ed word and shows that C.P.C. should be the concern of the whole Church. C.P.C. is 
YOU — every man, woman and child in the Church family. To the Church Periodical 
Club, you are the vital link, because through you its mission can be spread to all people 
everywhere. 

Since 1888 C.P.C. has been dedicated to supplying free the printed tools of 
learning to anyone anywhere who desires and needs them. These requests are handled 
through the National Books Fund which receives appeals from the most remote corners 
of the Anglican Communion and from as near as the next block. Last year the National 
Books Fund of C.P.C. gave a grant to the Bishop of Liberia for Altar Prayer Books, a 
grant for Bible Dictionaries printed in Japanese for training clergy in the Diocese of 
Teheku, Japan; book grants for many seminary students, and one to print a booklet to 
help African women with nutrition and child care. In Africa, one book might serve 200 
readers. A gift to the National Books Fund may make enlightened citizens of children 
who would otherwise be doomed to illiteracy. 

In our diocese, the Church Periodical Club work is done through the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, headed by a diocesan Director of C.P.C, and carried out by C.P.C. 
Secretaries in the branches. 



Suggested Procedure for C.P.C. Secretaries 

1. Know and understand the work of C.P.C. Expand plans to promote effectively 
this work in your branch. Share your new ideas with other branches, through your 
C.P.C. Director. 

2. Review records and materials with the previous C.P.C. Secretary. 

3. Discuss with your Clergyman the importance of C.P.C. and ask for his ap- 
proval and support in your efforts to promote it. 

4. Ask your E.C.W. president for the opportunity to present a special program 
on C.P.C. for your branch. 

5. Be sure to include the Church Periodical Club in your E.C.W. budget. 

6. Keep informed about C.P.C. communications, news and materials. The folder 
"Do You Know What a Book Can Do?" mentioned above can be obtained free from 
the National Office or from your Diocesan Director. 

7. Promote gifts to the National Books Fund and the Seminarian Book Scholarship 
Project. Suggested ways for making money for these are as follows: 

(a) C.P.C. Sunday (generally the first Sunday in October). Place Folders 



54 



and Offering Envelopes in the pews and ask the Clergy to use the 
C.P.C. Prayer. 

(b) Coin Cards 

(c) Budget (Churchwomen's or Parish) 

(d) Sale of magazines 

(e) Memorials 

(f) Book Fairs 

(g) Bazaars 

8. Suggestions for other C.P.C. activities (non-financial). Take magazines 
and books to the following places: 

(a) Nursing Homes 

(b) Launderettes 

(c) Doctor's Waiting Rooms 

(d) College dorms 

(e) Retarded Childrens Classes 

(f) Day Nurseries 

(g) Jails 

(h) County Home 

(i) Shut-ins 

(j) Retired friends 

Note: SEND ALL CONTRIBUTIONS to the Diocesan Director of C.P.C. Do 
not remit to the Diocesan Treasurer. All contributions should be made to the Director 
by check, enclosing a memo showing the source, so the proper credit can be given. 

When your branch or parish sends a check to the National Books Fund as a 
memorial or as a gift to a Seminarian, the C.P.C. Secretary should so inform the 
recipient of the memorial or gift. 

Your Diocesan Director wants to help in any way she can to further this important 
work in the Church. Please feel free to call on her.
